Festival in the Pines is proud to host the first-annual "Abra Auto Body & Glass Classic Car Show" on Sunday in Carson Park. Those interested in participating can register by entering the park anytime after 8am at the upper gates, near the Paul Bunyan Camp and Chippewa Valley Museum. Volunteers will direct the owners of Classic Cars through the outer rim of the park to the venue, which will be located next to the Gordy's County Market Showcase Stage and Eau Claire City/County Tavern League beer tent.
The entry fee is $6 per person. Prizes and trophies will be presented on Sunday at approximately 3pm.
Gordy's County Market Shop N' Drop
We don’t have shopping carts at Festival in the Pines, but we do have the Gordy's Shop ‘N Drop. This tent, which is staffed by area Girl Scouts, will hold on to your merchandise while you continue your shopping expedition. Similar to a coat-check counter, customers will be provided a ticket that can be turned in upon leaving the Festival. Donations to the Traveling Interest Group, a group of junior high and high school Girl Scouts, will be used to help offset the cost of taking a trip to further their scouting education.
Free Petting Zoo - Sat & Sun: 11 AM-3 PM
Come and see some of Mother Nature’s most unique creatures at the FREE Petting Zoo at this year’s Festival in the Pines. Larry and Diana Rickard, owners of Fantasy Corral in Woodville, WI, will have a variety of animals on display, including miniature donkeys and horses, fainting goats, colored chinchillas, a wallaby, a zebra and more!
The petting zoo will be located near the children’s games and rides area and the Xcel Energy Family Entertainment Stage. Pony Rides will be available for $3 again this year.
