Ice Age Trail Days – Community Dinner & Partner Exhibits

August 10, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm



Join supporters and staff as we celebrate 60 years of building, stewarding, protecting and promoting the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Celebrate with us at Ice Age Trail Days in Cross Plains, which is both the headquarters of the Alliance and a designated Ice Age Trail Community focused on increasing awareness of the Ice Age Trail and the mission of the Alliance.

Cross Plains is hosting a community dinner at Zander Park in downtown Cross Plains. In keeping with the community theme, the Alliance is partnering with local farmers and businesses to host a farm to table dinner, live music, refreshments and of course, birthday cake. On Friday afternoon, stop by Zander Park to learn more about the Ice Age National Scenic Trail and visit partner exhibits. Booths will be on display with family-friendly activities and educational information to learn more about the Alliance’s mission.

Reserve your seat at the COMMUNITY DINNER with a $25 non-refundable ticket, special pricing for children.

Hurry! Seats are limited and ticket sales end August 1st.
