THANK YOU FOR JOINING US AT THE 2019 EVENT! CHECK BACK HERE FOR DETAILS FOR NEXT YEARS EVENT, SATURDAY JULY 4TH, 2020!
Invite and meet Ridgefield High School Alumni and long term Ridgefield residents who are returning for the festivities. Join in as we celebrate all things potato at July First Saturday: Homecoming and Spudder Fest!
We will begin the day at Overlook Park with a Spudder Pancake Breakfast (wear Spudder gear or colors and eat free!), we will then welcome our regular Farmer’s Market and First Saturday vendors to the scene with a multitude of potato related activities! Participate in the Potato Olympics, Potato Games, and Potato 500 Races! Enjoy a wine garden from Spudder’s Crest Wines. End the day laughing and learning with Rhys Thomas’ Golly-ology – Rhys Thomas is a former Smithsonian artist-in-residence who takes juggling beyond physics to explore archaeology, chemistry, mathematics, and other sciences.
Meanwhile, just a few blocks away at the Ridgefield Community Library there will be an assortment of kids crafts and a book signing by author Malorie Anne Castle, of her children’s book, “If a Bear Stops by for Tea.”
