City of Portage Seeking Organization to Sponsor Perch Fest

By: City of Portage Last Updated: August 15, 2012

city of portageDue to City budget constraints and financial losses incurred during previous Perch Fests, the City of Portage will not be sponsoring the festival in 2012. Mayor Snyder believes a community festival should be undertaken by a volunteer not-for-profit organization similar to other events held in the county such as Valparaiso’s Popcorn Fest and Chesterton’s Oz Fest. The Mayor went on to state that the City looks forward to working as partners with the organization that assumes the leadership role in sponsoring the event.

For those who are interested in heading and/or volunteering to assume the responsibility of running the Perch Fest, please contact the Portage Event Committee at 219-762-5425.
