West Monroe is gearing up for an incredible event on Saturday, April 6th, 2024 – the Autism Acceptance Festival and 5K run at Kiroli Park. This festival is not just about running; it's a celebration of acceptance and inclusivity.

Participants can choose between a 5K run and a one-mile fun run, both promising to be a blast. Plus, those who register will snag cool t-shirts and a swag bag, making it a memorable experience for everyone involved.


You’ll want to start your engines bright and early! The run kicks off at 8:30 a.m., so make sure you're ready to hit the pavement and show your support.

The festival takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Kiroli Park. Best part? The festival is free for all to attend! Get ready for a whirlwind of excitement with game booths, jumpers, inflatable slides, and food vendors galore. It's a day packed with family fun that you won't want to miss!

So mark your calendars and lace up your shoes for a day filled with fun, acceptance, and making meaningful connections. Don't miss out on this opportunity to support a great cause and be a part of something truly special.
