The Bellbrook Lions Club will hold our annual “SummerFest” festival on Friday & Saturday August 18 and 19, 2023 at the old Sugarcreek School at 51 S. East Street, Bellbrook Ohio. The SummerFest begins Friday night and goes from 5 – 11 PM with games, carnival rides, crafts, and lots of great food! There are lots of things to do for kids and adults alike. On Saturday, the Festival will go from 4 – 11 PM, with the parade through downtown Bellbrook starting at 4 PM. 

We will have a wonderful beer & wine tent with live music, and great food trailers for Italian sausages, chicken & fries, cotton candy, and last but not least funnel cakes. No one will go home hungry!!

One notable change for this year is that due to ride vendor availability, we had to reduce the festival to a two-day event.

The Bellbrook Lions Club raises money annually for Bellbrook youth programs impacting over 350 youths. Additionally, annual scholarships are provided to qualifying students and donations are made to the Bellbrook Police and Fire Departments, plus much more. The festival is one of our largest fundraisers, so thank you for supporting our great community.
