Support the Festival!

This event is run solely by volunteers. We need your help to make this a success for the community.

By volunteering your time, skills or services, you can help make this an event that you and your kids will remember forever!

We are keeping admission the same to keep the event as affordable to our families and friends as possible, and we are looking for local businesses to sponsor our booths and activities.

Please email RDMPA President, Laura Mottram, for more information.
