October 2nd, 2021
The 112th Carbondale Annual Potato Day celebration is set for Saturday October 2nd, 2021 in Sopris Park. This year’s theme is “Tuber Renaissance.” The potato is an underground tuber and renaissance means renewal. This year we celebrate our own renewal as we begin to emerge from the pandemic restrictions, like a potato tuber sending its leaves above ground to absorb the light.
The festival will include a parade down Main Street, booths and family activities in Sopris Park, along with the traditional community meal consisting of bbq’d beef, salad and of course, baked potato.
Potato Day is Carbondale’s oldest community event, originally a way for ranchers and farmers to celebrate the end of harvest season and come together to socialize and have fun. It still holds a special place in the heart of this community and in order to continue to preserve this cherished celebration, it needs the support of people like you.
There are FOUR ways for organizations and individuals to participate. Please see the flyer for more information or go to the Town of Carbondale website; Parks and Recreation Page. Thank you for making Potato Day happen!Find out more »
