The Elizabeth Scott Community in Maumee will celebrate fall with its 6th Annual September Fest, a free, family friendly outdoor event on Saturday, September 13, from noon to 5pm. The festival is open to the public and will be held on the campus of the Elizabeth Scott Community, 2720 Albon Rd., Maumee.
Nearly 2,000 guests turned out for September Fest last year.
Elizabeth Scott, which offers independent and assisted living as well as skilled rehab, is celebrating it’s 65th anniversary this year.
The festival includes a 35-foot tall zip-line, giant inflatables, arts and crafts, and activities for kids.
“We add something new to the event each year,” says Matt Bucher, Director of Marketing for the facility. “For example, this year we’re adding four new activities—a Jungle Island Animal Farm, a rock-climbing wall, pony rides, and train rides. Plus new entertainment featuring Johnny Rodriguez.
“We’re also bringing back our popular antique farm tractors that will be on display again,” says Bucher. “A lot of festivals feature classic cars. We’re a little different with our antique farm tractors.” The tractors are part of an antique tractor club called Power of Yesteryear. Bucher says there is significance to having the antique farm tractors at September Fest, since the Elizabeth Scott Community began in his great-grandmother’s farmhouse. Today, that farmhouse is still a part of the Elizabeth Scott campus. “Plus, we’re located in a rural area, so we believe there is a nice country feel to our September Fest.”
Rodriguez, a popular local musician, will be the featured musical artist, with Kaiden Chase opening. Returning again is the Off Broadway Dance Company, a local tap dancing troupe.
Elizabeth Scott’s September Fest will also feature Las Vegas-style casino games with play money. “The casino games are a huge hit with the residents of our facility,” says Bucher. “But they are open to anyone who attends the event.”
Food and refreshments will be available for purchase from We Are Ribs, a multiple-award winner of the Northwest Ohio Rib-Off; Nick’s World Famous Hot Dogs; R & L Concessions, and Bialecki’s Old Fashion Ice Cream. Non-alcoholic soft drinks also will be sold.
