Connor’s Birthday Festival of Caring is an outdoor festival designed to support Union County’s charities and community service organizations while bringing families and neighbors together for a fun afternoon on the farm! All Union County nonprofit organizations are welcome to participate at no charge for a day to interact with the public, talk about their work in our community, and run a fundraising activity. We welcome local vendors to the festival as partners to our participating charities — in lieu of the traditional vendor fee, vendors are required to partner with and donate to their charity partner. This year, we will be featuring interactive equine therapy demonstrations, local arts and crafts, music, pony rides, a children’s game area, funnel cakes, hay ride, food trucks and more! All proceeds go to participating, local charities, so visitors can be sure that money spent or donated at the event is shared with their favorite local nonprofit organizations that work with Union County residents. This is a great event to attend for a low key, enjoyable afternoon of games, food, music, and a little shopping too!
Connor’s Birthday Festival of Caring was created in memory of Connor, a 12 year old Union County boy who died by suicide in June 2018. The one thing that he was confident about was his ability to help others, and he loved doing just that — helping at church events, Boy Scout community projects, local animal rescue farms, and anyone else who needed any sort of help. The festival is our way of continuing Connor’s love of helping others and following his lead by helping as many as we can. With that in mind, this event is free to attend with no parking fees. Individual games and activities will be asking for donations to their charity to play.
