“This strong commitment to our charitable care mission could not be possible without the generous support of our Friendship Haven family and community friends throughout the years,” said Denise Halverson, Friendship Haven’s director of engagement.

Hilltop Fest debuted in 2019, but it wasn’t held in the last two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Punching Pandas, a six member Iowa band that covers a wide range of rock and pop artists, will be the featured entertainment.

Food will be provided by Olde Boston’s Restaurant & Pub.

Hilltop Fest will conclude Spirit Week at Friendship Haven. Each day of Spirit Week will have a special dress-up theme, visiting food trucks and activities.
