Save the Date for KrocFest!!


Kroc Center Back Pack party 08.17.2013   Looking for one last day of fun this summer before school starts and the weather begins to cool?

August 16, 2014 is the day to visit downtown South Bend!

Lots of exciting things are happening around here that day, including ArtBeat and our very own KrocFest!

We are pretty psyched for all of the fun things planned.  Our soccer field will host an obstacle course sponsored by the ROC of St. Joseph County, KROC17aug2013_220

and mascot challenges.
















The Kroc Center is proud to take this opportunity to partner with the South Bend Community School Corporation and WNDU to give away free backpacks to children in the community.  Last year we gave away nearly 4,000 bags filled with necessary school supplies in an effort to ensure no child in our community had to start the year unprepared. DSC_0109Kroc Center Back Pack party 08.17.2013

Area businesses also pitch in to provide services such as free hair cuts and physicals so that kids can start the school year right!


So whether you are looking for fun in the sun or a way to get your kids ready for school, come visit the Kroc Center on August 16, 2014 from 3-6pm!
