Festival of the Moon & Sun Brings Great Music and More!

festival-of-the-moonThe Festival of the Moon & Sun, a two-day event celebrating one of the shortest nights and longest days of the year, will bring rockin’ music, great food, delicious drinks and lots of opportunities to hang with old friends … and maybe make a few new ones in Old Town.

On Friday, June 23, festivities take place from 6-11 p.m. and include music by Lincoln County Process and Slim Gypsy Baggage, as well as food by Grand Grillin‘. Numerous Bell’s beers will be on tap to quench your thirst.

Continuing on Saturday, June 24 from 3-11 p.m., the festival will feature The Jonestown Crows, Beggars Banquet Band and The Stick Arounds. Providing local eats will be From Scratch Comfort CruZine Food Truck. Lots of beer and wine choices will be on hand and, new this year, bourbon tasting and cocktails will also be available.

Entry begins at $20 per day in advance or $25 per day at the door. If you’re looking for a bargain, purchase entry to both nights for $37 in advance or $42 at the door. Entry includes a souvenir glass and food/drink tickets that can be used toward any of our excellent vendors. Additional food/drink tickets can be purchased on site.

Festival of the Moon & Sun takes place in Parking Lot 56 and Burchard Park in Old Town. The festival is a 21+ event.
