Event Guidelines

Our Tails & Ales event is held in the Spring within and around our 3.5 acre Dog Park at the Willowhaven Park & Nature Center.

The purpose of Tails & Ales is to provide an entertaining evening for dogs and their owners as they socialize at the dog park, as well as those who like to shop and listen to music. We understand that pets are an important part of many families in our community and we want to offer a safe, fun environment where dogs can play and owners can meet and greet with others. Do not fret if you do not have a dog, you are welcome too!

The Easter Bunny and his little ducky friend invite you and your little one to a free Easter Egg Extravaganza. Your child will be able to search for eggs that the Easter Bunny has left behind!


Art in the Park is a great way for parents and children to experience the art world together. Children are able to create art projects instructed by professional artists and parents are able to shop for unique, handcrafted fine arts and crafts. Proceeds from this festival will go to the Exploration Station!
