West Fest

August 10, 2016 11:38 AM

Alder Barbara McKinney, Alder Matt Phair, Madison Parks, and many area residents have joined forces to create a new community event, West Fest.  The event will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2016 from 7:00am-7:00pm.  This community building experience will be a fun and educational replacement for the fireworks that had been staged at the park.  This event, designed for people of all ages is free and open to folks beyond the Elver Park area.

The day will begin with fitness classes that begin at 7:00am, as well as early access to the splash pad, and nature-based learning activities.  Included in this fun filled day are kid, teen and senior zones, a dunk tank, resource tent and a performance stage! Food and beverages will also be available for purchase.

Sponsors are always welcome and needed at all levels, including donations or volunteering. Without the leadership of City Alders and staff, the involvement of residents and the support of sponsors, this event could not be a reality. I truly appreciate all their work.  Because of marvelous community engagement and support, this is sure to be a great event!  For a schedule of activities and times, how to donate or volunteer, please visit the links below:
