As a steward of our community, Lime Rock Park supports numerous charitable causes and events by assisting with their fundraising efforts here at the Park or by donating giveaways for silent auctions and raffles.
Here are just some of the ways Lime Rock Park Cares:
2018 Official Charity - The Michael J. Fox Foundation
Lime Rock Park has selected the Michael J. Fox Foundation as it 2018 Official Charity. This charity is especially near and dear to our hearts, as our good friend and former race car driver Sam Posey has Parkinson’s. Sam has been a champion, not only on the track, but as an advocate for finding a cure for the disease. Through our fundraising efforts this year, we hope to have an impact on the lives of all of those who urgently need a cure, including Sam. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s research, MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for the more than 6 million people worldwide who live with Parkinson’s disease. Since inception in 2000, the Foundation has funded more than $800 million in high-impact research around the world.

Salisbury Fall Festival
In 2016, Lime Rock Park participated in the Salisbury Fall Festival. This annual event is a wonderful time to indulge in a hearty breakfast of freshly-made blueberry pancakes,then wander Main Street for attic treasures, global crafts, and previously-loved books and jewelry in the villages' churches. Admire the beautiful quilt show. Visit the many booths along the street and stop in the local shops for special sales.
