The City of Adams is offering the City’s Lions Park as a venue for non-profit organizations to hold events in a highly visible location. Available, at no charge, is the “City Food Shack”, (Portable Concession Building).  This is an excellent opportunity for your organization to raise money for your cause. Whether is it a pie and ice cream social, brat fry, concert in the park, craft/vendor show etc. in order to support your organization, this year, the City is waiving all park fees for Lions Park.

As you may or may not know we have extended the park by blocking off half of Hazel Str. The intended use for this is the above mentioned activities.

We are trying to establish a calendar for this summer. It is a first come first serve basis. If you or your organization is interested or for more information please contact:  Michelle Klein, City of Adams, City Hall. 608-339-6516, adamsct@maqs.net

We are trying to offer our community coming together and utilizing our downtown to help your organization earn funds.  Our location on Main Street is a highly visible traffic area which will provide more people coming to your event.

 Adams was founded in 1912 when the North Western Railroad arrived. We were a railroad terminal, located halfway between Chicago and the Twin cities. Railroad jobs brought in people and businesses. In just a few years Adams became so large the needs for services became apparent and therefore the residents voted to become a Village. As the years went on the Village’s needs grew even greater and in 1926 the Village became a City.

Since our origination we have been a Community of Progress. As we look into the future we have our eyes set on redevelopment. We are looking forward to reshaping our Main Street corridor to its highest and best form and capturing the full potential of Downtown as a community and commercial attraction.
