The Kenadi Jean Weis Foundation can never thank you enough for another successful Kenadi’s Karnival & Silent Auction Fundraiser held on Saturday, June 23, 2018. Our hearts are still smiling!
We greeted over 1,100 attendees and raised nearly $40,000 to help create an all-inclusive playground destination, which will welcome children of all abilities to learn, grow, and develop together without physical or social barriers. From set up to tear down and everything in between, without you there would be no Kenadi’s Karnival.
Mark your calendars for next year’s event scheduled for Saturday, June 22, 2019. If you would like to be a sponsor, host an advertising game booth, donate to our silent auction or volunteer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where’s the fun without a little friendly competition?! The Strider Bike Races are designed to provide just that. We offer a safe, fun, and slightly competitive atmosphere where children can show off their skills in front of a cheering crowd supportive of all riders.
We welcome back Dr. Jonathan Reth, who was a cyclist on the US National Cycling Team during the 1990’s, to conduct the races. Ready. Set. Strider!
Special Needs will be determined by participation
Register any time before the races which begin at 1:00 PM

Heath Johnson is an Americana Country singer/songwriter from Spearfish, SD. He organizes the South Dakota Songwriters group and activities around the Black Hills area and puts together songwriter’s rounds for other local artists. His musical influences range from classic country, to modern Americana, folk, and red dirt music. Along with his solo shows, he is also the lead in an Americana Honky Tonk band named The Ruthless West.
The acoustic classic country duo of Dan Coleman and Ja’net Persche are also part of the original music group, South Highway 85. These two self-proclaimed country bumpkins from up north play some mighty fine toe-tappin’ music!
Jackie is a native to Rapid City. She is a lover of the arts and involved in many ways. You can find her playing guitar and singing downtown at restaurants and other venues. She is involved in the Firehouse Theater where she performs in plays and musicals. On the side she does large abstract paintings and recently illustrated her first children’s book.
Take a listen and enjoy her relaxed mix of chill, folk music.
We thank these fine musicians for sharing their talent on stage at Kenadi’s Karnival with all of us! Without them we’d be listening to a prerecorded playlist, and it doesn’t like applause nearly as much as they do!
