Red Hawk Fest 2021!

Sunday, August 29th from 4:00 to 8:00pm
Natick High Memorial Field
A FREE fun festival
for high school students who live in or attend school in Natick!
Hosted by the Natick Police Department
and Natick Public Schools
Looking for something to make the Back to School transition more fun for your high school student? REGISTER NOW for RED HAWK Fest - an opportunity for your student to connect with friends as everyone transitions back into the school year! Our Natick Police have volunteered their time to design and create this event to support our students with an opportunity to come together and have fun in a relaxed setting.

The event is designed for students only*, but will be supervised by the Natick Police and Natick Public School staff. 
Students will enjoy FREE FOOD AND FUN including:
  • NEW Grill Station! Including hamburgers, cheese burgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers (thank you Wegmans for the donations and thank you volunteer grillers from Rotary Club of Natick!)
  •  Starbucks drinks!
  •  Yummy shaved ice treats from Kona Ice!
  •  Fun Inflatables!
  •  Rebounders from GravOxy Fitness
  •  Selfie photos with Allison Manzella Photography!
  •  Student Community Art Project with Amy Adams, Natick's Artist in Residence! (Amy will use art to include students and NPD in a collaborative 3D mural project. Each participant will be painting their unique piece they can look out for AFTER THE EVENT. The complete image will represent a unified NHS community as part of the school's spirit animal, the Red Hawk.)
  •  Music and Karaoke!
  •  Lawn games, including Spike Ball and Corn Hole!
  •  Chill Zone - Meet Hugo the Pony from Horse SenseAbility at Wild Star Farm, pups from Pets & People Foundation, enjoy quiet activities and space for connection with friends! 
  •  And even more awesome activities to be announced soon!
Go HERE to register for this FREE event!  We Look forward to seeing you there!

*If your student would benefit from an adult to access and participate in the program, you are welcome to attend with your student or to send someone to provide additional support. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
*Red Hawk Fest is a mask friendly event. Though wearing a mask is at your personal discretion since this is an outdoor event, the Red Hawk Fest Planning Team and our Natick Board of Health partners encourage everyone participating to have a mask with them. All volunteers handling and serving food will be wearing masks. Hand sanitizer will be provided at each activity area and at all food stations for students, and stadium bathrooms will be open for hand washing. Thank you for helping us keep this event safe and healthy for everyone to participate!


Donations Welcome!
