In addition to enjoying nonstop music, festival attendees can purchase food and beverages and bid on a wide range of goods, services and experiential offerings at a silent auction. Vendor booths and raffles are to round out the afternoon’s attractions.

Proceeds support Habitat’s mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.
