It’s that time of year for the best-kept entertainment secret in Oakland County to happen again! Please plan on joining us for the 18th annual Auburn Hills Parade of Stars Bluegrass Festival on Saturday, September 6, 2014 from noon-7pm. It will be held at scenic Civic Center Park, 1827 N. Squirrel Rd., Auburn Hills, MI. Admission is only $5 for adults, students and kids are free – and bringing a lawn chair is a good idea.
Our four national bands this year feature some old friends and some new ones. This year’s festival will feature a “Salute to Women of Bluegrass” and we’ve got some of the best! So, once again, the Claire Lynch Band will be with us, as will Sister Sadie, an all female band of all-stars, headlined by Dale Ann Bradley. Flatt Lonesome, a new band of young people making a splash nationally, is made up of 2 women and 4 men. Our host band, Special Consensus, has all guys in it, but even they have a few surprises in store for us.
Mr. David Blakney, of CJAM Windsor, will once again be our knowledgeable and personable emcee, along with Allen Audio providing stellar sound. There will be free giveaways, great food by Alfoccino’s of Auburn Hills, band cd’s, t-shirts and more, and a fun time will be had by all!!
My awesome staff at the Parks & Rec Dep’t has been working hard to be ready for YOU! For more information, call us at the Community Center office at 248-370-9353, or go to our website at www.auburnhills.org. See you September 6th!
