Recess Raleigh at Dorothea Dix Park

Event posted Aug. 09, 2017 - 2:38 pm

Recess Raleigh at Dorothea Dix Park will be held Sunday, Aug. 13 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 801 Biggs Drive. Join your friends, family, and neighbors for a summer cookout and field day at Dix Park Athletic Field!

RECESS RALEIGH is a free annual summer cookout and benefit for Helping Hand Mission of Raleigh, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that has supported Southeast Raleigh children, elderly, disabled, and economically disadvantaged families with food, clothing, furniture and shelter since 1972.

Held this year at Dix Park Athletic Field and featuring cookout-style food and drink (prepared by Capital Club 16 & Friends!), field day games and activities, music and art, we’re excited to partner with the City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department’s Dorothea Dix Park Planning Team as they lead Recess participants in re-discovering Dix Park as it is today, while dreaming and designing what it could be tomorrow!
