The Howard Village Board voted to limit pets to the sidewalks and trails only at Howard Commons.
For everyone's safety and for sanitary reasons, pets will not be allowed inside the buildings, the Biergarten, the splash pad, the great lawn, or other event areas.
Every alcohol beverage at the Biergarten is served in a pre-purchased glass. Reduce waste while earning discounts on refills when you return your glass!
Purchase your glass with the first beverage and enjoy affordable refills. Refills will be less expensive – take your glass with you when you leave and bring it back for years to come.
First Drink (including glass): $8
Refills (with your glass): $6

If temperatures are forecasted to be in the single digits for the majority of the open hours; the rink will remain closed. Wind chills forecasted below zero will also cause the rink to remain closed. The safety of our staff and patrons remains a top priority, and closures will be communicated via our Facebook page. Thank you for your understanding!
