Hi, McKinley Family and Friends,

It is only 180 days until the next SoNo Fest!! The committee is actively recruiting new members to help run another record breaking festival on the streets of Thorn and 32nd!

Joining fundraising/event committees is a great way to get involved at McKinley and the SoNo Fest crew has positions available to accommodate the varied and busy schedules of all our families!

If you are interested in joining the committee, please email us:


Also, if you know a restaurant that would like to participate in the chili cook-off, a vendor who might want to sell their wares at the festival or a business that might want to sponsor the event (which attracts more than 20k visitors), please let us know via the email listed above or contact Katy at: 858.829.1140.

Thanks, everyone! We can’t wait for SoNo 2022!

Alex Dunlop, Tracie Stender and Katy Strand
