We are busy planning our 2024 festival.  Please check back soon for more information.  In the meantime below is information on last years events.

Join us Saturday August 3rd at Nock Middle School

70 Low Street NBPT
10am – 2pm


We are back again at our new location at the Nock Middle School as we start off our Super Saturday with good family fun!  Many local businesses, organizations and non-profits take part in our Family Day fun offering free crafts, games, activities and handouts.  Sit down for some lunch and listen to the band playing on the main stage or watch one of the performances taking part throughout the park.

A voluntary toll booth is positioned at the entrance of Family Day. This is completely voluntary but does go a long way to keeping this event free.

We are accepting applications for Family Day.  Please remember the booth is free as long as you provide a free craft, game, activity or handout for the kids.

Below is a list of participating organizations.  Please check back often as we will continue to update this list as more sign up!
