We plan to give everyone an opportunity to stroll and read two books along a one-mile trail in the park. Parents as Teachers National Center and Great Rivers Greenway invite you to bring your friends, family and neighbors to the 4th Annual Life Outside Festival.

Parents as Teachers National Center and other partner organizations from across the region will let you see, try and learn about a variety of outdoor activities you can do in our region in a free, fun and supportive environment. Activities will include outdoor experiences related to active living, camping, cycling, mind and body, nature and conservation, paddling and running.

In between activities, you can purchase food and beverages from a variety of popular area food trucks and listen to one of 18 musical acts that will be performing throughout the day. Drinking water in reusable bottles and sunscreen will also be available for free.
