About the Event
Food, activities, music and entertainment, all free of charge. We have also worked to make the event accessible to all students and the addition of Pets & People and a chill zone with quieter activities has been a positive addition to past events. We'd welcome your volunteers and their dogs, at any time, to wander, sniff and connect with students.. Red Hawk Fest has been designed by our School Resource Officers (SROs) as an opportunity for free back-to-school fun and connection building with students and trusted adults. It's been a great highlight for our SROs and so many community partners!
