Co-Chairperson Brian Wutz, “The continued conversation and enjoyment of Bowie Park defines the City of Fairview. The Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with the City and Bowie Park for the 35th year of NatureFest to bring this family friendly event to life for our citizens and local business community. We enjoy the park, learn about nature and local history, and have a lot of fun. The focus of NatureFest is clearly on the kids however we offer great food, shopping with local vendors, fellowship, and live bluegrass and country music playing all day on two stages for adults. It’s a day to engage with the community and have fun!”
