We are so excited about Cheetahfest 2018 rain or shine, it’s going to be a great day! The theme for this year’s Cheetahfest is “Under the Big Top!” and we are planning all kinds of exciting things for the event.
Cheetahfest is Friday, April 6, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. DUE TO THE 100% CHANCE OF RAIN, WE HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO MOVE CHEETAHFEST INDOORS.
BELOW YOU WILL FIND UPDATED INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT ACTIVITIES TO EXPECT AND WHERE YOU CAN FIND THEM.
NOTE ABOUT TICKETS: Many of you purchased $2 tickets for Face Painting and the Bungee Trampoline, which were not included in admission. Face Painting will still be available and you will need your tickets for those! However there will be no Bungee Trampoline due to the rain. We realize some of you bought multiple tickets and you probably can’t get your face painted twice. So we have decided that you may use the extra tickets for a $2 credit in our bake sale for a baked sale items, and/or a red balloon on a stick ($1 each).
Silent Auction: IN THE LIBRARY
Our Silent Auction is live for browsing, bidding (some items only) and pre-bidding!
We have made some changes this year to help make Cheetahfest Silent Auction checkout more efficient, and to allow more people to bid on the teacher auction experiences and fifth and grade and kindergarten classroom art projects. This year, those items will be ONLINE ONLY. You will not be able to bid on classroom teacher experiences & art projects at Cheetahfest. You will need to bid at the online auction site (linked to from our PTO page) to bid on these items. The auction for those items will end online on Thursday April 5 at 1 p.m.
For all other items, such as gift cards and our amazing auction baskets, pre-bidding online is now over so that we may create bid sheets (the highest online pre-bid will become the starting bid for items at the auction). Bidding will end live at the Silent Auction at Cheetahfest on Friday April 6.
If you want to make sure you win an auction item, many items will have a “Buy it Now” option at the bottom of the bid sheet that guarantees you get the item right away!

YELLOW TABLE AUCTION ENDS AT 7:45
RED TABLE AUCTION ENDS AT 8:00
BLUE STRIPED TABLE AUCTION ENDS AT 8:15
