“Our goal is to create a town tradition that local residents would think not to miss. We appreciate that so many local business members, restaurants, and community organizations are contributing to the event’s success,” says Montgomery FunFest co-chair Jean Robinson.

“The goal of this first annual event is to connect individuals, families, schools, local businesses, and non-profit organizations to celebrate our community. We can’t wait to see members of our community gather together and enjoy a wonderful day at FunFest,” says Montgomery FunFest Co-Chair Todd Royer.

This event is a cooperative effort between the Montgomery Economic Development Commission (a municipal government committee) and the Montgomery Business Association (non-profit group) – connecting our individuals, families, schools, local businesses and non-profit organizations to celebrate our community.
