Please join us for our 31st Annual Fall Fest, Saturday, September 19th, 2015, from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. Our rain date is Sunday, September 20th, with the same hours.
At the event you will enjoy music, food, crafts, locally grown fresh produce, vendors, and informational booths about local programs. The annual event has grown over the years and will host over 120 vendors, a great line up of music (between 10 am and 4pm), 8 food vendors, face painting, and other kid’s activities. In addition, Chester Bowl t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other items will be sold by the Chester Bowl Improvement Club.
Suggested donations of $2 will be accepted at the entrance to support Chester winter program scholarships for kids in need who want to participate in winter sports. Donations last year totaled about $7000 and the goal is to surpass this amount.
Free Shuttle Service:
The public is highly encouraged to use the three free shuttle buses that will run continuously from the University of Minnesota Duluth parking lot B, located at the intersection of College St. and University Drive. Parking is very limited near the event, so walking, biking, or using the shuttles is highly recommended. There are handicapped accessible parking spots near the entrance to the park.
This annual event is sponsored by the City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Division, Midwest Communications, and the Chester Bowl Improvement Club.
