Sunfest at Dix Park
Free  .  Past

Celebrate the new sunflower fields at Dix Park! Enjoy local food trucks, arts and crafts, live bluegrass—or just a wandering through the five-acre fields of sunnies. 

"Get outside and celebrate summer at Dix Park!

We will have something for everyone to enjoy at this event, including live music, arts and crafts, performance artists, vendors and amazing food trucks! There will also be a special surprise!

SunFest runs from 2-7 p.m. Arrive anytime and stay as long as you like.

Food trucks are cooking up special menu items that you can only find at SunFest! Come dine at Sarge's Chef, Curry in a Hurry, Gussy's Greek, Rare Earth Farms, Poblano's Taco, Lumpy's Ice Cream, and Cocoa Forte! Trophy Brewing and Bull City Cidery will be pouring their brews, too!

Bring the kids and make some fun arts and crafts, sponsored by Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources, Scrap Exchange and Home Depot!

Shop the local arts, crafts and artisan food product scene as we bring 25 creative businesses to the park! You're bound to find the perfect item for yourself or a fun gift for a friend.

We'll even have a photo booth on site so you can capture a snapshot of the day!

Finally, join us for a bluegrass concert featuring the hit band Shiloh Hill from 5:30-7 p.m.

Please note, this program will involve walking on grass, on uneven surfaces, across all forms of terrain.

Registration is not required, but it does help us to know how many guests to expect."
