Eastport a Rockin’
June 17, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
Created as a way to expose local music to a larger audience, Eastport a Rockin’ has drawn attendees from throughout the neighborhood and across the region for more than 20 years and is known as the local music festival of the summer. Some 35 bands are expected to perform on 3-4 stages, keeping local, original music a key component of Eastport a Rockin’. Up and coming local bands with a wide range of styles will display their talents alongside longtime favorites. Over the years, Eastport a Rockin’ has featured such bands as Good Charlotte and Jimmie’s Chicken Shack. From rock to folk to roots to blues to jazz to bluegrass to funk, and even some Kindie rock, the breadth of music types found at the festival is sure to please.
Features mouth-watering food, including local seafood, BBQ, gyros, shave ice and more. Thirst quenching beverages include an array of domestic and craft beers and a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, smoothies and coffee drinks. The Kid Area includes moon bounces, face painters, tattoo artists, and other great family friendly activities, as well as a stage with Kindie (kid indie) rock from local musicians and showcasing some of our local teen musicians. Proceeds benefit deserving local charities.
