Patch Toy & Game Sale

Saturday ONLY, 9 am - 4 pm

Patch holds the Toy & Game Sale during one day of the festival, selling products at a discount. Festival goers can shop for the latest games, puzzles, toys and educational tools at wholesale prices! Profits are given to Preservation Park in Beloit for improvements and additions.

It's a huge fundraiser for the community!http://patchproducts.cust.shopatron.com/img/PatchTentSaleLogo249.jpg

Patch also plays a large role in the Festival on the Rock, not only with the Patch Toy & Game Sale, but on the committee that organizes the event. We volunteer our time and resources to work on the art, marketing and advertising for this community event. Because of Patch's and other local businesses' sponsorship, the event offers
