After having to cancel the 2020 festival due to the pandemic, the entire theme, entertainment schedule , etc. has carried over to 2021 on June 24th 25th and 26th. We think everyone will love our new, bigger and better festival! Our members continued to hold out hope that things would be better by now and we are seeing progress.  We ask that you still use masks in congested areas, sanitize and social distance!  We have lost our parking field and fireworks launch site but have a new field but it will not be ready to use in time for this year. So please park at the new high school on route 3 just west of town past the Church of Christ.  We will have shuttles constantly rolling on Friday and Saturday.  Thursday is a light attendance so you may park in the park that day. You can also find alternate parking in town and walk down the sidewalk or the trail that runs in back of the park. Other issues keep coming up and we are doing our utmost to make things happen as usual! We have a new feature, a Build A Bear event. Kids can make their own bears and there will be special little shirts with the festival logo and date to make them collector’s items! Check it out! Our beer garden is back this year.  There is a limit on number you can consume, please adhere to the rules for this area. Near the stage you can listen to the bands and relax.

Wait till you hear them do the Rolling Stone’s Paint it Black! If you can’t wait check it out on YouTube! Spinning Jenny is proud to say they are a family consisting of Dr.John Balzano and his three daughters Julia (24) Talia (21) and Angelina (19). Dr.Balzano passed on his musicianship and love of music, particularly rock and roll, to his daughters at an early age. Before long the girls learned how to play guitar, drums, bass and keys. And that foundation officially led them to starting Spinning Jenny in 2011. During their live shows audiences can expect to hear a wide variety of music genres-old school rock and roll, the latest hits on the radio and alternative rock hits as well. This ensures that there’s something for every age to enjoy. The next step for Spinning Jenny was creating their own music. They started working on their debut album, “Outside The Lines” which mixes rock and pop to create a unique blend of songs. Their album was released it to the public in 2014. Spinning Jenny also made their first music video for the song “Outside The Lines” as well, followed by an EP “Weightless” in 2016.  In 2018 they were chosen to compete in Topgolf’s TV competition series, “Who Will Rock You”. No matter what the future holds for Spinning Jenny, their love of music and love for each other as a family will continue to drive them.  If you missed them the first time, make sure to get here early to get a good seat! These girls not only are great singers but they will ROCK you!
