Arts & Creations Pottery Studio will also be on hand. There will also be food trucks and vendors including Grizzly Bob’s Vintage Hot Dog Cart and Sip n’ Swirl Ice Cream.

Make it a no-cook Friday: Come have some fun, bring the family and find out what "Stigma Free" is all about.

The group offers information, education, assistance and support to those who are living with or suffering from mental illness and diagnosable conditions as well as individuals who are impacted by mental health disease.
