The Roxborough Music Festival is back for its 6th year and it’s scheduled to have the most live music to date. Starting at 5pm on Friday, September 9th, five bands/musicians will perform on the Guitar Center stage just in front of Angel’s Share Wine Pub. Music will go well into the night concluding with a jam session by various artists. Saturday, September 10th includes even more music because not just one but two stages will host musicians starting at noon.
Like previous years, there will be plenty of activities for kids and adults. Two bounce houses will be available for kids to enjoy along with face painting, games and the popular dunk tank.
Speaking of the dunk tank, you can sign up to get dunked this year. Just visit http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0449afad28a1fa7-2016 and pick a time slot on either Friday or Saturday. Why not challenge your friends and family? After all, all proceeds go to Hands Across Roxborough, Roxborough Primary and Intermediate School and the USO.
Angel’s Share Wine Pub, Dominos, Kona Ice Truck and Waterton Tavern will have yummy eats for sale. There will also be hot dogs, chips, cotton candy and popcorn for sale at various concession stands.
Over 25 vendors will be onsite from noon to 7pm selling and promoting their products and services. Clothing, artwork, demonstrations and plenty of information will be available.
New this year, are liquor bracelets for those that are 21+. The $5 purchase includes a commemorative cup and entry into the Heads & Tails game throughout the day.
Want a chance to win a MINI for a month donated by Schomp MINI? Raffle tickets are currently for sale for $15 each or 3 for $40. Get them early because the price increases on September 9th to $20 each and 3 for $50.
Events like these are never possible without volunteers. If you want to help out you can do so by signing up for two-hour shifts at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/805044aadad2ba13-music.
