This one-of-a-kind event combines kindness activities and service projects benefiting local nonprofits in a pavilion filled with big-hearted families ready to do good and give back.

There will be festival food and drink available for purchase. Bring a pair of new socks (any size) to hang on the community Sock Line. All socks will be donated to Simpson Housing Services.

DGT is a Minnesota-based nonprofit organization that encourages families to raise generous, compassionate, civic-minded children by offering opportunities for them to practice kindness and serve others together. DGT empowers families to care, share and give through its Big-Hearted Families program as well as workshops, online resources, service events and a variety of tools that make “doing good” a meaningful and fun experience for the whole family.
