Virtual MODFEST – Now a Virtual Walk for 2020

Due to COVID-19 and our safety concerns for our supporters, the traditional Mission of Deeds’ MODFEST Family Fun Festival will now be celebrated as a virtual walk in 2020.

Update from Paula Goss


Dates:  September 14, to September 20, 2020

Location:  Your choice of where and whether it will be a short or long walk

You are invited! Join Mission of Deeds Virtual MODFEST Walk, September 14 thru 20, 2020.

It’s Time to Have Some Family Fun
Until We Can All Be Together in 2021!

Our traditional event, MODFEST Family Fun Festival has always been held in Wakefield in late September at the beautiful Lake Quannapowitt, near the lower common by the Gazebo. There are all kinds of super fun activities for everyone in the family.

However for 2020, we reinvented our annual MODFEST event because
COVID-19 is now part of our lives. So, Virtual MODFEST is now a virtual walk.

We are returning to the roots of our inaugural event in 2008 when MODFEST started as a simple walk around Lake Quannapowitt with our founder, Tony Triglione. So in 2020, walk around your neighborhood, or around a lake/pond, or in your back yard, it all counts whether it is a short or a long walk.

Join us in supporting Mission of Deeds’ good work.

Use Your Imagination for 2020 Walk Photos – And a Year We Will Never Forget!

Post your Virtual MODFEST walk photos on social media and tag Mission of Deeds, @MissionofDeeds so we will see you on our Facebook page.

Feel Free to Share This Event Opportunity with your social network(s). We would really appreciate the boost in exposure.

On the day of your walk, please wear your mask and abide by social distancing guidelines.

Thanks in advance!
