North Liberty Offers a Summer Slate of Fun You Can Count On
After a year of shifting plans, stand ins and alternatives, our community needs fun it can look forward to and, most importantly, count on.
Today, we’re announcing North Liberty’s Summer Slate, and it’s exactly that: free events that can easily adjust to comply with public health recommendations and provide a mix of online, small group and outdoor in-person programs for all ages.
Highlights for May include North Liberty Trivia Night (May 12), Mega Kites (May 16), the first Movie on the Lawn (May 28) and the Fairy Trail. The summer will also offer drive-in movies, concerts in the park, inflatables, acrobatic performance, fireworks, a playground crawl and much more. In all, some three dozen events are scheduled through September. Visit the full schedule – and save the dates – at northlibertyiowa.org/summerslate.
Event details, including if a free reservation is needed for capacity limits, location and time, will be released at the beginning of each month.
These free events are made possible by Veridian Credit Union, South Slope, Shive-Hattery, Hills Bank, GreenState Credit Union, Eastern Iowa Airport – CID and the City of North Liberty.
While we are looking forward to a fun summer, public health is our highest priority. Working with Johnson County Public health, COVID mitigations will be in place for all in-person events that we’ll adapt as the public health landscape changes. All of our in-person Summer Slate events will take place outdoors, all staff, volunteers and vendors will be masked,hand-washing and hand sanitizer will be available. Attendees should wear a mask if they’re over 2 years old, should maintain physical distance from other households and should stay home if anyone in their household is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has had contact with someone who has tested positive in the past two weeks.
Additionally, we’re committed to providing access, equal opportunity and reasonable accommodation for these events for individuals with disabilities. If you need an accommodation to participate, please contact [email protected] or call (319) 626-5726 at least two days prior to the event.
