2012 Felix Grundy Festival dates announced

September 16, 2012

The Felix Grundy Festival Board of Directors and Planning Committee are eager to announce the 2013 Felix Grundy Festival will be held July 12-13, 2013.

"We looked at the calendar and discovered that more times than not the Festival has been and would be held on the 2nd Saturday of July. We researched concerns regarding competing local festivals. We also took into consideration volunteer recruitment efforts when the Festival would have fallen so close to the 4th of July holiday," said Mitch Biersner, 2012 Felix Grundy Festival Chair. The 4th of July fell on a Wednesday this year and will be on a Thursday in 2013.

The scheduling of class reunions was also considered. "The reason we're getting the word out now is to allow time for the reunions to be scheduled. Venues that we know about have been booked already for reunions the 2nd Saturday weekend. We're hoping this will make it easier to plan for future reunions," said Biersner.

It also will make it easier to remember when the Festival will be held. "You wouldn't believe the number of questions I received regarding when the Festival would be held this year. More than a handful of people told me they had to rearrange their vacations to be able to attend the Festival this year, because they had anticipated it being held later," Biersner said.

If you are interested in helping organize the 2013 Felix Grundy Festival, please contact the Mitch Biersner at the Grundy Center Chamber of Commerce by calling (319) 825-3838 or emailing

Future Festivals will be held the 2nd Saturday and preceding Friday of July. The dates for the 2014 Felix Grundy Festival will be July 11-12, 2014.
