The 2019 Carver Community Center’s Summer Celebration (formally known as Ribfest) is our largest fundraiser of the year. It will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at Foster Park (on the corner of Washington & Superior). The event begins at 12:00 pm and ends at 10:00 pm.
Carver Community Center’s Summer Celebration is a fun-filled day of food, beer, wine, and music to benefit the center’s programs. We will have local restaurants and food featured at the event with some of the best barbecue in the city. We will have a kid’s area as well as a pickleball tournament.
Carver Community Center, Inc. is a non-profit community center based in Howard County (Indiana) that was founded in 1947 in response to the lack of recreation facilities for African-American youth. Since then, it has expanded into a center that serves thousands of youth and adults of all races and nationalities in Kokomo. Our programs for youth and adults include tutoring, basketball, boxing, art, bingo, pickleball, volleyball, and other education and health programs.
All proceeds directly support our youth and family programs, facility improvement projects and the daily operations of our center.
