Karner Blue Summer Festival

The Organization of two Black River Falls festivals have announced they are combining efforts to create a remier summer event.

The  2016 Karner Blue Butterfly Festival to be held Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2 will include additional events and entertainment formerly a part of Festival in the Park.  Events on Friday and Saturday will be held in downtown Black River Falls before shifting to Lunda Community Park on Saturday night for music and fireworks.  The Black River Area Chamber of Commerce Karner Blue Race will also be held on Saturday, July 2.

This promises to be a weekend full of events and activities for everyone, The collaborative effort will be bigger and better than ever.

Organizers of the Festival in the Park are excited to  join forces with the Downtown Association to create one citywide fstival.  There will be some adjustments thatwill need to be made, but the end result will be a two day event filled with family oriented activities that will attract more people to our community.

Traditionally the Karner Blue Festival has been held the third weekend in July.  The date for the Festival in the Park has moved a few times but has recently been held on July 4.  The first weekend in July represents a new date and a compromise between the two events.
