Fun Fest is an Orono PTO FUNdraiser!  There are lots of fun ways to get involved.  This is our school carnival held in February each year.  It consists of fun activities such as carnival games, a cupcake walk, bounce house, treats, prizes and more!  The actual carnival is only one part of this extremely important fundraiser: there is also an online auction, classroom basket auction, a teacher time raffle and so much more!


The Fun Fest Online Auction is in full swing!  Click here to bid:  We’ve got a fresh look and lots of new items!  Also new this year, the auction will remain open during Fun Fest, closing at 3 pm on Saturday, February 9.  Winners can pick up their items at Fun Fest, or arrange for pick up later.  Need not be present to win!  Contact Amy Mitchell with any questions at


A BIG THANK YOU to our TOP Level Sponsors!  We couldn't do it without all of you.

We are looking for a co-chair to help coordinate and prep the classroom baskets to be auctioned off at the Fun Fest Carnival. Last year, we raised over $10,000 with our basket auction!
