Welcome to the Special Events page!
Every year the Town of DeWitt hosts a number of special events for all ages. Several events have been traditions in DeWitt for 20+ years while others, like the Youth Fishing Derby and Fall Festival, are recent additions to our yearly calendar. We are proud to announce that our newest event, the Valentine's Day Father/Daughter Dance, was a huge success and will be expanded to accommodate twice the number of participants next year!
Select an event from the list on the left for general information and event photos. Information on upcoming events can be found here or on the events calendar. If you have an idea for a new event or are interested in becoming an event sponsor, contact Megan Ball at (315) 446-3910 x 127 or email@example.com.
Keep an eye out for these new events in 2014:
Discovery Day: Saturday, May 3, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm at the DeWitt Town Hall
Join the Town of DeWitt in conjunction with the DeWitt Advisory Conservation Commission (DACC), Tree Committee and Sustainability Committee at our first Discovery Day!
This FREE family event is open to anyone that is interested in learning about the environment, conservation, tree biology and planting, alternative energy and much more! Our theme this year is "Think Global - Act Local."
Children will enjoy our Discovery Room filled with hands on activities, experiments and crafts projects. Cindy Page will present on protecting wildlife with her birds of prey and the Rosamond Gifford Zoo will present some of their "Zoo to You" animals. Families can build a birdhouse, learn about locally made products and get information about important environmental issues like EAB.
Mother/Son Event: May
After the tremendous response to the Father/Daughter Dance, we are excited to present a fun night for mothers and sons. Look for more information on this event in the 2014 Spring/Summer Brochure due out in April.
