Fuel up for summer fun with Tanager Place’s 30th Annual Summer Fest. This year’s event will be a drive-thru experience on Saturday, June 5 from 3:00 – 5:00pm. Our goal is to continue to provide family friendly activities in a re-imagined way to ensure our community’s safety.

All pre-registrations spots have been filled. 300 bags will be available to non-registered attendees and will be given away while supplies last. Our “ignition starter” event bags are geared for kids ages 4-10.

Event bags include:

  • Craft Kits—Pipe Cleaner Rings, Pipe Cleaner Action Figure, Sun Catcher, Popsicle stick critters-Jelly Fish Puppet
  • STEAM Activities
  • General Mills Cereal Box Decorating Contest & Treats
  • & much more!

Items included in the bag may contain small parts/pieces and are not suitable for children under 3 years as they pose a choking hazard. Adult supervision during craft and activity time is recommended.

All reserved spots have been filled.

Missed registration? We will still have 300 bags available to non-registered guests while supplies last!
