When: Saturday, June 16, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
For 24 hours, between 2 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday, radio operators compete to make the highest number of contacts in a variety of radio frequencies and categories while operating on emergency power.
The festival held on Saturday drew "well over 1,000 people," said Dee Dannewitz-Wallace of the LCF Group.
The initial event at the site is being produced by Festival Farm Productions, LLC, and will feature a showcase of local talent, skills and activities that will offer attendees a good time outdoors with family appropriate entertainment, say the promoters, who bill themselves as the "Wow Special Events Team."
The title, they say, reflects their focus on offering only family appropriate events that are exceptionally well-planned and executed to elicit a "Wow!" response from participants.
The inaugural event at the site will be the first of an annual "Bluegrass & BBQ Festival" that will be held Saturday, May 28, 2011, between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. at a natural amphitheater on the former farmland.
Mark your Calendars: The inaugural season of the National Music Festival is May 29th – June 11th, 2011. Talented Musicians – Outstanding Concerts – Free Rehearsals – Boundless Fun!
