The local media have called Summerfest the county’s largest outdoor event located outside of Troy and Rensselaer and by State Police estimates has drawn over 15,000 people during the weekend’s events. 

        The Kiwanis Club of Sand Lake proudly presents Summerfest 2012 to thank our Community for their support of our projects. Last year over 13,000 persons attended the Summerfest 2011- 324 persons paraded to Honor our Community Service groups, 5 Community Organizations successfully raised money for their individual community service goals, 24 Crafters sold their wares, people danced and sang to the a variety of entertainment, and the Town of Sand Lake had a Great Time!

This year’s festival will be a Town picnic with Chile Tasting, Craft Fair, Town Parade, Road Race Tennis Matches, and “Hair of the Dog” as Saturday’s Entertainment with Fireworks, Softball Tournament and Children’s Community Activities by Sand Lake Center for the Arts. We will continue to recognize and honor our troops serving Around the World and a special recognition of our Community Veterans Organizations and the new Veterans Park.

 It is our largest fund raiser for the Kiwanis Club of Sand Lake to support the community projects conducted during the year.
