On Sunday, May 19th, Firebrand Resiliency Collective is excited to host “RISE”—an all-ages community-building event focused on supporting meaningful connections and sustainability. 
The event includes a full music stage, kids’ activities, and more than a dozen local organizations and agencies. From face painting to mask-making to food trucks, RISE is full of activities for the whole family: We’ve got your fire engine spraying water and making rainbows, we got your tree plantings, bike workshops, a group bike ride from Ashland… we even have a beer garden and food trucks and the brick oven magic of Clyde’s Corner!

Get directions to the event here:

Parking is limited, and a free shuttle service is provided along with a drop off/pick up area on site. TROLLEY PARKING LOCATIONS BELOW. We encourage attendees to ride or walk to the event using the Bear Creek Greenway!
