SCICON Barbecue & Wildflower Festival

The 55th annual SCICON Barbecue & Wildflower Festival will be held Sunday, April 19 from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. There is no charge to visit the campus or enjoy the numerous activities. SCICON staff will be on hand to lead wildflower, bird watching, and nature hikes. Musical groups from local schools will provide live entertainment. Tickets are available for a delicious deep pit barbecue luncheon at $10 per person for adults and $5 per person for seniors 60 and older or for children 12 and under.

A dedication ceremony of a new brick walkway will be held at 1:30 p.m. on the day of the barbecue. Established in honor and memory of Dick Hoskins to celebrate his motto of "SCICON is people working together", the walkway will provide an opportunity for service clubs, businesses and families to purchase a brick to show support for SCICON. Located by the bell tower, the walkway is a lasting reminder of the community's commitment to the SCICON program. Each brick will be engraved with the donor's name and/or company logo. Bricks will be available for purchase at the barbecue, payable by cash, check or PayPal. Donors may also purchase bricks online at
