SPECIAL EVENTS
Get hooked, celebrate long
summer days and party all knight

Find family fun on a budget with Grand Forks Park District events. All of our special events are geared to celebrate precious time together as well as our area’s diverse seasons. Together, families discover new skills like fishing, bowling, or dancing like a princess. Because they all grow so fast, take time for these affordable events with your family, including Greenway Snow Day, Hooked on Fishing, Lucky Strike, Santa’s Village or the Knight for a Princess dance.

You’re invited to all our special events:
