Mayor Terry to Host Summer Activities Fair on Sunday, May 19


The City of Evansville will host a Summer Activities Fair next Sunday, May 19, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Swonder Ice Arena.

The event will offer parents and children the opportunity to explore available summer programs, ranging from single events to volunteer opportunities to camps, happening this summer. This includes the chance to speak with representatives of the organizations putting on the events, as well as the chance to sign up for summer activities on-site.

“Every summer, there are a tremendous number of opportunities and activities available to children and teens in the Evansville area,” said Mayor Stephanie Terry. “These are chances for children to stay active, to engage in the community, to continue learning – and to do all of them in safe, structured environments. As part of our Safe Summer initiative, we wanted to create an event that allowed people to see all of these opportunities, to speak to the people who are running them, and to make decisions about which activities they wanted to make part of their summer vacation.”

Along with city programs run by the Department of Parks & Recreation, Mesker Park Zoo, and the Evansville Police Department, numerous not-for-profit organizations and other community groups will be represented at the Summer Activities Fair. Some of these include:

  • The Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library
  • The University of Evansville
  • The Children’s Museum of Evansville
  • The Boys & Girls Club of Southwestern Indiana
  • Evansville Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
  • Young and Established
  • The Girl Scouts of America
  • Burdette Park
  • And many more!

The event will serve as a kickoff to Mayor Terry’s Safe Summer initiative, aiming to provide families and children with safe options for summer activity, while also encouraging continued learning and community engagement.

All parents and children in the region are invited to attend and learn about the many options available this summer.
