Earl Park Fall Festival

Each elected board member serves two years in his or her position. Individual event chairmen are appointed or volunteer and serve until they almost cannot serve anymore! Many people have filled several positions at one time. Do not be fooled by the list of chairpersons. Many people volunteer their time without any recognition. The festival is produced by all kinds of people with all kinds of specialties. And many people specialize in nothing, yet their efforts are priceless.

The Fall Festival is funded with numerous donations from area friends, families, and businesses. Proceeds from previous festivals--including raffle sales, camping fees, and proceeds from commercial and flea market spots--also keep the festival running. The not-for-profit foundation reinvests any profits back into the Community Park in the form of roads, building improvements, and playground equipment. The foundation also makes many donations to local charities, schools, organizations, and individuals.

There are no admission fees or parking fees to attend the festival. All events and shows are free. The only costs to enjoy the festival are to purchase food, purchase vendor items, or to buy raffle tickets.

An estimated 40,000-45,000 people visit Earl Park during Labor Day weekend. This is exceptional when you consider that the community of Earl Park consists of a population of approximately 709 people. In fact, the festival hosts more campers than Earl Park households during the holiday weekend!

Regular meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the months from March through June. Meetings occur on the second and fourth Tuesdays during July. Weekly meetings occur every Tuesday during August. Anyone and everyone is welcome at festival meetings. The floor is open to anyone’s question or comment. Volunteers are always needed and welcome.
