Nile Valley Days is held at Jim Sprick Community Park during the third full weekend in July of each year. The weekend is packed with fun family activities: Many vendors with hand-crafted items, displays, kid’s games, horseshoes, live entertainment, and horseshoe tournaments. Come join us for a weekend of fun-filled events and old-fashioned competition as well as great music and food at Jim Sprick Community Park. 

Food vendors include corn on the cob, freshly baked pies and much more!

Highlights of the day include the blackpowder demo and gold prospectors demo and the amateur wood events including the cross-cut saw, wood-splitting, and ax throw.

Check out the scrumptious elephant ears, which are served all day. The hamburger and hot dog booths will open at 10:00am on both days serving fantastic hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and sweet corn-on-the-cob.  A fine selection of delicious pies and cobblers can be found at the Nile Women’s Club booth.

And while you’re there be sure to get a $1.00 raffle ticket for that beautiful quilt!  Don’t forget to top it all off with tasty ice cream from the Youth Group’s booth.  You won’t want to miss the horseshoes and axes flying so come both days.

Pet Policy

Between the heat and leftovers that hit the ground, your critters will get sick very fast.  It’s no fun when they get sick and it’s no fun for them when you leave them in a hot car, so please leave your pets at home.

Buy a Button

Buy a button for $2.00 and win great prizes that have been donated.

And don’t forget this is for the community by the community so we need volunteers; call us if you can help.  SUNDAY EVENTS WILL END BY 1:30.
