Something For Everyone
We’re still getting our squirrels to their nuts for this year, so please hang in there with us. We rolling with last year’s information for now so you know what it’s all about. The bands and the games will be different but the event will still follow the same great tradition of fun for all.
Each year is better than the last with great shows, entertainers, and bands that you’ll just go NUTS about. The Civic Circle is transformed into an all day venue of music, fun, and games for the whole family. Last year our headlining bands were 5 Guys Named Moe and Slow Ride. All the great support from our awesome sponsors made this a free event for all who attended and also allowed us to discount the concert ticket prices to $10. Tickets will be available for purchase at the event as well as through Squirrel Fest volunteers.

Camera on Squirrel Bridge
Attention Squirrel Lovers! If you have always wanted the opportunity to see our bridges through the eyes of a squirrel, now you can! With the help of the team at Cascade Networks, Inc. we have a camera installed on our Bruce Kamp Memorial Squirrel Bridge for you to sit and watch for a squirrel will cross. – This is a great opportunity to have a family gathering, bring your friends over for popcorn, or for date-night with the sweetie. Go Nuts!
