Category: General Meet the Mountains

August 23, 2019

On the heels of a highly successful inaugural event last August, the organizers of the Meet the Mountains Festival are putting the finishing touches on their second annual celebration of all things outdoors. The festival will once again be anchored in Founders Park on Aug. 23-24, and Kayla Carter said the goal is to advance the mission that inspired the creation of the festival in the first place.

Folks who show up at Founders Park for this year’s festival – which runs from 1-10 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23 and 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24 – will be greeted by a format that is very similar to last year’s festival. Classes, clinics, hands-on demos, competition, entertainment, vendors, food and drink will provide something for people of all ages. There will also be tie-ins with events happening offsite in order to encourage festivalgoers to get out and explore the region.
