Get ready for a great 3-days at the 38th Festival in the Park (FIP).  Just below is the complete listing of events.  


When we get this document all finished, we will have a link that you can download and print.  The Black Hills Pioneer will also have the FIP pullout section as part of the paper just before the festival.  If all else fails, come to our information booth during the Festival (we’re right by Band Shell) and pick one up!  Easy peasy.

Leave Fido at home

Give your Pet a break!Friendly reminder:  No PETS are allowed on park grounds throughout the event.  It is a city ordinance for these 3 days only.  If you bring a pet, you will be guided to the booth of the Western Hills Human Society who are providing pet sitting services for FREE.  However, there is limited space available.  Do yourself and your pet a favor…keep them at home.
