Marana’s Founders’ Day, on March 25 at Ora Mae Harn Park, is just a few weeks away, and there’s a lot to look forward to at this year’s event. The Town’s partnership with the Marana Heritage Conservancy is sure to make this day a fun celebration for all attendees.

All day long, from the pancake breakfast in the morning to the beer garden in the evening, we’ll be celebrating the community spirit that inspired Marana’s founders to establish this Town forty years ago. Don’t miss this opportunity to watch Marana’s past come alive.

The Marana Community Food Bank, a venerable institution working to eliminate hunger in our region, will start the event with a pancake breakfast. Chow down on a syrupy, flaky stack of goodness, and wash it all down with a glass of orange juice or cup of coffee.

Once you’re fueled up for the day of festivities, claim your spot to watch the Founders’ Day parade. With floats representing Marana’s heritage, as well as the thriving community surrounding us today, this stream of creatively decorated exhibitions is sure to entertain one and all. The theme of this year’s parade is celebrating Marana’s 40th birthday, and each float will represent that heritage in its own unique way.

After the parade, you’ve got a whole afternoon to experience a range of fun activities. There will be live performances from our stage, a beer garden serving up all your favorite brews, and even a car show displaying a wide variety of vehicles, from classic hot rods to powerful hogs.

Throughout the day, you won’t have to worry about going hungry, either. We’ll have 16 food trucks serving up tasty treats, including ice cream, burgers, and even authentic German currywurst.

Founders’ Day is one of Marana’s most popular events every spring. To get in all the action, be sure to mark your calendar for March 25! We can’t wait to see you out there.
