SPACE presents Field Day in Payson Park. Join us for a pre-July 4th family-friendly celebration with a day full of play complete with all of the weird, wild, and wonderful surprises you expect from SPACE. Field Day is made possibile with support from the Horizon Foundation and Elsie Lee Garthwaite Memorial Foundation.


Plan to:

+ Bring a picnic blanket and a favorite game or book

+ Make a costume or dress to the nines to keep our field games strange

+ Decorate your wheels ahead of time for our bike parade around the back bay!

+ Unplug and connect with your community!
