In 2021 a small group of volunteers became the new Portage Summerfest Board of Directors and Committee Members. This group of volunteers has dedicated several hours every week throughout the year to put together a 3-day weekend packed full of events from sun up to sundown. This group’s main goal is to create a fun filled weekend for the young and old alike and to bring the residents of Portage and surrounding communities together for great food, live entertainment & vendors selling their wares. The objective is to make money & donate to the Portage Crichton McCormick Park to help maintain its beauty along with helping others in the small community of Portage.
