The Friends of Wallisch events committee will be hosting their biggest fund raiser of the season on Saturday, Sept. 18, at the Homestead from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“After the success of the first Music Fest, it was decided to make this an annual event. COVID put a stop to the program last year so this will have to be Music Fest #2,” said John Hefferon, Events Committee Chair. “Our committee has put a lot of work into making this year’s event better than the first. The team has locked down and expanded a list of local artists as well as food and craft vendors.”
The musical line up will be Ethan Arnowitz opening the show at 11 a.m. followed by The OCD Band, Founding Fathers, Farmer Phil, The Kootz and Stoneflower who will wrap up the event at around 6:30 p.m.
There will be several food stands throughout the day including coffee and baked goods by The Vreeland Store, Pizza by DeMarco’s, Hot Dogs & Sausage by Big Eric’s Food Truck and Zeppolis by Mario’s Deli.
Wallisch Homestead will have ice cream and water on hand for purchase.
There also craft vendors including Artist by the Lake, Ingrid Creations, Wayward Custom Leather, Pampered Chef, The Growing Scenter. Kelly’s Kreations, FM Designs, Nelly Belly’s Unique Boutique, and more.
This year, a special display of classic cars will be on hand.
