Community Events

Brainerd Community Action puts on many 4th of July related events but also helps out with others such as the Downtown St. Patrick’s Day parade, Flag Day ceremony and the Distinguished Service Awards. We are happy to partner with you, should you need a helping hand. Contact us and we’ll help out to the best of our ability.

Here are some ways to help you gain success with YOUR event
