Plans are coming together for the Dickinson County Trails fundraiser that will be on Saturday, July 27 at the Okoboji Brewing Company. We are working with the brewery to create a great new outdoor event space and there will be a variety of brews, wine and a bourbon tasting. Farm to Fork is providing a fantastic menu with live music both in and outside of the brewery. Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are now available through DCTB’s website and Facebook pages.
