Eastport A Rockin’ Needs Volunteers

| June 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Eastport A Rockin’ festival is a week away and this time next week, the sounds of music will be wafting over Eastport, Back Creek, and the Annapolis Harbor.

Volunteers Needed

While everyone should attend, it is a 100% volunteer effort and they are looking for some people to step up to the plate and help out. Volunteers get free admission, a bag of swag, and the satisfaction of helping out your community raise funds for local causes! As an added bonus, if you can work the 5pm to 8pm shift, Davis’ Pub is offering a $10 gift card. Please sign up to volunteer and we will see you there!

The Festival

Created as a way to expose local music to a larger audience, Eastport a Rockin’ now draws attendees from throughout the neighborhood and across the region and is known as the local music festival of the summer. Three stages now host 27 bands and music remains a key component of Eastport a Rockin’, as up and coming local bands with a wide range of styles display their talents. Over the years, Eastport a Rockin’ has featured such bands as Good Charlotte and Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, and the next big act just might be in this year’s line-up. From rock to folk to roots to blues to jazz to bluegrass to funk, the breadth of music types found at the Festival is sure to please everyone.

With an unbeatable location surrounding the Annapolis Maritime Museum on Back Creek in Annapolis’ historic maritime district of Eastport, this daylong festival offers everything an attendee could want. Mouth-watering food, including BBQ, gyros, seafood, shave ice and more, will be available as will thirst quenching beverages, including Miller & Yuengling products and a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, smoothies and coffee drinks. The Kids Area, always a popular section of the festival, will feature a moon bounce, face painters, tattoo artists, cotton candy and other great family-friendly activities. The streets and sidewalks will be lined with vendor booths featuring local artisans, crafters, non-profit organizations, entertainment and more.

Proceeds from the event benefit deserving local charities including The Annapolis Maritime Museum and Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians (AMFM). Dogs (on leashes) and strollers are welcome, coolers and outside food and beverages are not.
