Lizfest 2017

About this event :

It’s that time of year again… time for the 6th annual LizFest, Celebration of Life!  LizFest is an annual Living For Liz event in honor of Elizabeth Holman-Melde, non-smoker who lost her battle with lung cancer in 2012 at the age of 25. The purpose of LizFest is not only to raise money to fight lung cancer, but also to spend one day every year celebrating Elizabeth’s life as if she were here herself. LizFest is an all day celebration boasting multiple activities all over La Crescent, MN over Elizabeth’s birthday weekend.  Come help us celebrate!

LizFest 2017 is sponsored by:
