Gus, along with the NAF Board of Directors, were very sad that we had to cancel the 2021 Festival. So we started working on to ways to still celebrate our favorite green veggie.
We are pleased to announce that The Ryan Walsworth Spear It 5K will be held as an IN PERSON and VIRTUAL run this year! So dust off your running shoes and get ready to run!
A big thank you to Shelby State Bank & Gales Agency Inc. for sponsoring this event and helping us to keep the Spear It alive!

Registration is live! Who’s ready to run?!

This years race will be a fun run with each participant receiving a commemorative T-Shirt and medal.

Complete your run or walk anywhere you choose June 1-14 and in person on June 12th in Silver Lake.  Make sure to post your results or a post run picture tagging the NAF with #SpearGus5k to be entered into an “Experience Oceana County” gift basket. We will also have a youth inspired basket, so have your little spears use, #SpearGus5kJR

This event is in loving memory of Ryan Walsworth, a former local asparagus farmer who was a faithful contributor and donor to NAF as well as supporting the asparagus and agriculture community here in Oceana County and beyond. We are honored to recognize Ryan's hard work and community spirit through the 5k.

A special thank-you to Todd Greiner Farms and Silver Lake Chicken Shack for your generous contribution to the festival. Todd Greiner Farms has donated fresh, local asparagus so that all participants get a taste of the local crop, and Silver Lake Chicken Shack allows us to use their facilities for coordinating this event every year. Thank you both for your continued support.
