Our Biggest Event of the Summer

Come out for our biggest party of the season. Tents line our entrance as more than 25 local vendors share the beautiful bounty of the Midwest. Taste samples from leading companies like Rushing Waters Trout, 2 Fat Guys, Milk & Honey, Vosges, and more. Then take a break with a BBQ lunch with all proceeds donated to or newest One Dime at a Time recipient.  We’ll also have face-painting and games for the kids along with the music of recording artists Tangleweed and their unique sound once described as “a band playing on a pirate ship off the coast of New Orleans in the 1920s.” A great family day out that you won’t want to miss!
