Our events include but are not limited to:
This tradition takes place in the spring of each year, typically in April. The dance is an event for dads with daughters ages 10 and under. Because of the dance’s growing popularity, a reservation is required. Food, entertainment, and photo opportunities are offered each year during this inexpensive family bonding experience and community gathering. The dance usually takes place in the Garden House of Matter Park.
April is also the time for this annual environmentally-centered event. Parks & Recreation partners with Marion Utilities and our General Motors plant to provide an educational and fun-filled experience for the whole family. The event is free, but offers food and other services available for purchase. Earth Day usually takes place in Matter Park.
One of the most exciting places to be during nice weather in Marion is at one of our community concerts in Matter Park. People near and far bring lawn chairs and picnic baskets to enjoy all types of live musical entertainment. There’s the annual summertime concert in conjunction with the Fourth of July celebration, free concerts at the band shell, and much more!
Make memories in Matter Park by joining us for some heartwarming autumnal activities including hayrides, costume contests, pumpkin decorating, and much more!
