Things to Do

Summer’s End

Dates: Fri, Sep 3 - Sep 6

Price: Free

Location: Harry A. Nottingham Park

The inaugural Summer’s End celebration over Labor Day Weekend showcases all things uniquely Avon with an array of family friendly activities to explore.  We begin Summer’s End with Lakeside Cinema on Friday evening at dusk followed by the Avon Art Festival opening on Saturday morning and lasting through the weekend.  Saturday offers a full day of relaxation or activity at Nottingham Lake including sand volleyball, SUP and paddleboat rentals, playing at the swim beach or lounging under a tree and enjoying a picnic.

Sunday kicks into high gear with several super-fun activities to include three NEW races in partnership with SUP CO and listed below. Sunday winds down with a great evening of live music at SunsetLIVE!

1) Standup Paddle (SUP) Individual Race offering CASH prizes!  Register here

2) SUP-Squatch Team Race offering good clean competition and bragging rights to the winner!   Register here 

3) Cardboard Regatta Team Race to get your creative juices flowing! Register here 

We round out Summer’s End with a free performance by legendary trailblazing band, Los Lobos. For over five-decades, the East-L.A.-bred band has made an indelible mark on music history by exploring an enormous diversity of genres–rock-and-roll and R&B, surf music and soul, mariachi and música norteña, punk rock and country, and building a boldly unpredictable sound all their own.
