Feats of Strength II

Feats of Strength

Come one, come all, to the Feats of Strength competition! 

Ever wanted to throw a huge rock? A telephone pole? How about a hammer? Want to lift heavy weights and impress your friends and neighbors?

This is your chance!

Imagine a ton of Strongman events and all of the Highland Games events in one place! For just $25 you can not only watch the pros, you can try your hand at any event you fancy. Volunteers will be available to help you learn the ins and outs so you can experience your own feats of strength. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even pick up a new hobby!

In addition with providing you with an afternoon of fun and learning, Feats of Strength will be raising money for two great organizations: The Michigan Highlanders and Relentless Detroit.

 Kids, dogs, friends, and family are all welcome! Bring the gang! And if you’re interested in volunteering, please contact: Becky Wilson, Sarah Kosmicki, John Tracy, or Shauna Champion. You can also use this contact form.

Great things can happen when good people partner together. This event is being brought to you by the Michigan Highlanders, Strength Depot and Ferndale Parks and Rec.

Save the date!

May 20th, 2018 – Save the date!
