Festival at R25

Saturday and Sunday, June 5 and 6

Please stop by for the first ever R25 Festival - that's the parking lot where SPC lives at 25th and R - on Saturday June 5th (noon to 8pm) or Sunday, June 6th (noon to 6pm)

There will be artists' booths, live music, an art auction on Sunday, poetry, puppets, some drama performances, something for everyone.

We've been wanting to collaborate with the other organizations in the complex for a long time - this should be a fun weekend of music, art, poetry and more.

Participating Bands include: Marty Cohen and the Sidekicks, The Streamliners, Christian Dewild, Peppertree, Aisle 99, and the James Israel Band.

Thanks to Matrix Arts, Alliance Francaise de Sacramento, California Stage, Ed Claudio, and all the participating groups. The event is FREE, but we'll be asking graciously for donations, and selling raffle tickets during the afternoons.

If you want to donate an item for the raffle, donate to the R25 beautification project, or have any questions or suggestions, please contact me at bobstanley@sbcglobal.net. Or just come by for an hour or two - look forward to seeing you on June 5 and 6!
