Avon Summerfest Supports City’s Playground Project

The fun bubbled over at the Avon Summerfest. Little Melody was one of the many kids who took part in this first ever event hosted on the grounds of the MarketPlace at Avon.

The MarketPlace at Avon in partnership with the French Creek Foundation hosted an exciting event on August 6th with the first-ever Avon Summerfest.

The Summerfest was a day-long festival bringing together craft beer, food, fun, and art in an effort to raise funds to benefit the City of Avon’s inclusive Playground Project.

Paula Pitasky, Avon Community Liason, Cameron Orlean, MarketPlace at Avon, Lori Thomas, Manager Lowe’s Avon, Tina Oprea, French Creek Foundation, Mayor Bryan Jensen and (kneel-ing) Samantha and Clint Gault, French Creek Foundation, welcome guests to Avon Summerfest.

Tenants of the MarketPlace, along with local businesses and artisans offered food, giveaways, activities, and arts and crafts for purchase throughout the event.

Live music and entertainment was provided by local band The Player’s Club. Food offerings were served by Heck’s Café, Café Piccolo, and Melt Bar and Grilled. Local craft breweries including Butcher and Brewer and Sibling Revelry Brewery poured their most popular craft brews. There were also various activities for children, including face painting, balloon twisting, and services for kids provided by Snip-its.

The Playground Project is a new initiative to bring a modern playground to Avon that welcomes and supports children and families of all abilities. All proceeds from Summerfest will be donated to the Playground Project to assist with infrastructure and playground equipment at the site now under construction adjacent to the Avon Aquatic Facility.
