Poolesville SpringFest

Sponsors please consider donating your sponsorship to the Town instead of a refund to help recover costs of non-refundable deposits the Town has already made!

It is with a heavy heart that we have made an executive decision to cancel Spring Fest 2020. After lots of back and forth it appears things are not going to be back to normal in the short term, and it is best for us to call things off at this time. If you have purchased tickets, you can request a refund through Eventbrite. All sponsorship money and vendor fees will be returned as well. We look forward to start planning Spring Fest 2021 and coming back bigger and better than ever next year, so save the date of May 15,2021. Thank you all for your continued support and please be smart, wash your hands, stay at home and stay healthy.
Cheers To All,
Your Spring Fest Committee

Town of Poolesville

The purpose of the Fair Access for Western Montgomery County is not just to advocate for a new High School and Community Center. Our mission is to advocate for all urgent needs for Western Montgomery County. Today we have an urgent need to make sure that all kids in our area do not go hungry. This week Montgomery County Public Schools began providing meals to students who currently receive free and reduced meals (FARM) from MCPS. Unfortunately, they are not able to provide meals at all county schools. The nearest location to Poolesville to pick up free meals from MCPS is Clarksburg, which is 20 minutes away. About 11% of Western Montgomery County students currently receive free and reduced meals. We need to ensure they have access to adequate and healthy food choices during this time. Please click the link below to send an email to Montgomery County Board of Education members urging them to include a Poolesville area school as a site for area FARM students to pick up a meal.
Thank You for responding urgently
