Union County’s Inclusive Summer Festival for Persons With Disabilities and Special Needs Returns This July

The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites all residents with disabilities and their families to the 2024 Summer Festival for Persons with Disabilities and Special Needs. The event will take place on Sunday, July 28th, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Warinanco Sports Center, located at 1 Park Drive in Roselle.

“Union County is proud to offer a range of inclusive events throughout the year, such as our annual Summer Festival, which aim to create a welcoming and accommodating environment for families and individuals of all ages and abilities,” said Union County Commissioner Chairwoman Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “This year, we have organized a range of activities suitable for all ages, and we would love for you to join us for some indoor family fun. We are excited to see everyone there.”

July is Disability Pride Month and marks the 34th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a civil rights law passed in 1990 to prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life.

The festival will feature a wide range of activities and attractions suitable for people of all ages and abilities. Attendees can enjoy various activities including games, face painting, bubble shows, hula dancing, and a Stilt Walker performance. Light refreshments will be available in designated areas throughout the park.

“As we celebrate Disability Pride Month, the 2024 Summer Festival is just one example of the Board of County Commissioners’ commitment to creating an inclusive community,” said Union County Commissioner and Liaison to the Human Services Advisory Council Sergio Granados. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for individuals with disabilities and their families to come together, enjoy a day of fun activities, and celebrate the progress we have made in ensuring equal opportunities and activities for all.”
