The Portage Area Summerfest, Inc. committee is pleased to announce the presentation of Fundfest from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 15 2021 at the Crichton McCormick Park in Portage, PA. Due to a lack of funding, resources, and related issues to organize, produce, and present the normal, annual three day festival, the new committee decided to have a smaller, one day fundraising event this year. The hope is to raise enough funds to bring the full three day festival back in 2022 with all the entertainment, vendors, activities, and sponsors that have made the Portage Area Summerfest one of the premier events in the region.
This year’s Fundfest will feature a variety of activities and vendors for the whole family to enjoy. There will be an antique & classic car & motorcycle cruise from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with a $5 registration fee to benefit the East Hills Kiwanis Community Projects. Dash Plaques will be provided for the first 125 Vehicles. Musical entertainment will be UB the DJ starting at 10:00 a.m. followed by four of the Portage area’s finest musicians and singers featuring Jim Hale - 12:30, Ryan Krinjeck - 2:00, Rick Thompson - 3:30, and Jim Koban - 5:00.
Fundfest will have an array of craft vendors and also food vendors to satisfy everyone’s tastebuds. There will also be bingo, a basket raffle, 50/50 drawings, and other games to play. This year will also have a free kids’ area with The Home Depot Kids’ Workshop and other activities. The annual Portage Area Summerfest Golf Outing will be held at Maple Crest Golf Course in Portage at 9:00 a.m.
No pets, bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades, or alcoholic beverages are allowed in the park during the festival. We ask people to bring lawn chairs as seating is limited.
