Here’s the schedule

With these very cold days of winter we’ve been experiencing lately, I for one could use a little sunshine! Thankfully the details are coming together, the committees are working harder than ever and soon February 7 will be here. Yay!

You really should register if you haven’t already. Just click here to get that out of the way. It will only take a few minutes and you’ll be all set.

There will be so many things happening at Sunshine Fest that I figured we should all have a more specific schedule.

The following events will be on-going throughout the entire morning. Here’s the list.

All proceeds from this year’s Sunshine Fest will go to the Sunshine Memorial Foundation in support of the proposed Sunshine Hospitality Home project! This will be a place for patients and their families, affected by critical illnesses, diseases and, injuries, that must travel to Grand Forks to fulfill their healthcare needs. A hospitality house provides individuals with a place to sleep, eat, keep their belongings, relax and find comfort. It will be open to all ages and situations and will welcome families from the Grand Forks and surrounding region.



It’s going to be a fun day to support a great organization! Please get registered now!


Until then,
