We look forward to exploring additional events in the future to bring community together.
Here is an overview of some of our popular fundraising events...
The “Lee County Labor Day Family Festival & Redneck Games” began in 2012 The event offers a day full of “food, music, prizes, and good natured foolishness”.
The Annual Festival is held at the German American Club on Pine Island Road in Cape Coral, Florida. Among the happenings scheduled are a Hot Rod and Classic Car show, an Arts & Crafts Exhibitors, local business vendors, lots of kids activities including the balloon art, bounce houses and games, a variety of food vendors, a beer garden, prizes, raffles and more.
Featured on stage is a variety of musical acts as well as some crazy contests throughout the day.
The highlight of the day is the Redneck Games, which is where much of the good natured foolishness comes in. “Rednecks” are famously unpretentious and creative, and so it is with the Redneck Games – a sort of mini-Olympics on the down-low.
Featured at the games is the hilarious “Redneck Six-tathlon”, a competative race that features segments like “Tire rollin’”, “Tossin’ corn in the pot – from TV watchin’ position”, Spam sandwich eating, “Hangin’ the Laundry out”, and more. Also look for things like a “bottomless” mud-pit tug-o-war where local businesses can challenge each other for bragging rights, Best Mullett Contest (hair, not fish), Redneck Golf, toilet-seat horseshoes, peanut-spitting contests for both distance and accuracy, and so on.
The event is held on Labor Day (Monday). For prime sponsor and vendor space information please contact Chris Jackson, Executive Director.
