The festival will feature national and local music acts, food trucks, vendors and interactive attractions in a family-friendly setting to celebrate the area’s history, going back to its days as a stagecoach stop in the 1850s through Stagecoach Days, a local celebration hosted by the Rotary beginning in 1959 and later held by the City every October until 2016.
The festival also offers sponsorship opportunities for companies interested in generating exposure for their business while supporting the local community.
