DETAILS: http://www.clintonark.com/parkfest


***MISSION***

Our community has many worthy events throughout the month, but activities compete for attendance with so many things in our busy schedules. Event organizers work hard to plan their events, and struggle with getting word out. By joining together, we can help offer a truly amazing variety of activities at one place & time, for better visibility & promotability, which is more economical long-term.  


Clinton is fortunate to have not only a vast array of community activities, but the ideal venue to host them. Earmarking a day each month to share the beautiful, spacious facilities at Archey Fork Park is a celebration of our public spaces and a reminder of the true meaning of community in a small town.


***ADMISSION***

There is NO admission to ParkFest and all ages are encouraged to come and enjoy the Park during ParkFest days. The concession stand will be OPEN for daytime events, based on volume. 


***REGISTRATION***

Registration for a booth or group activity is FREE! Bring your own supplies and remove them accordingly. State & local regulations apply. Spaces & schedules are flexible but all setups MUST FIRST BE APPROVED by the Zoning Office. Registration is at City Hall, downtown Clinton (354 Main St.) Plan ahead & share your event info early to benefit from ParkFest promotions & publicity. 


For questions, email [email protected] or call Phillip at 501-745-8110.
