The Great River Road Revival, a celebration of music, food and fun, will take place Sunday Sept. 16 at the Widespot Performing Arts Center in Stockholm, Wis.
Doors will open at 2 p.m., with various performers onstage from 3 to 9 p.m.
Scheduled acts include the Twin Cities’ Paul Metsa, as well as Ben Durrant, Toby Churchill, Hans Friese, Tim O’Keefe, Bryce Black, Yata Peinovich, Spoonbill Catfish and more.
The show will be a fundraiser for the Great River Road Revival, an organization dedicated to preserving, protecting and promoting the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin region.
Food will be prepared by the trio of Sandra Thielman (Smiling Pelican Bakery), Judy Krohn (Harbor View Cafe) and Linda Harding (Kitchen Sage).
A silent auction is in the works with opportunities to take home artwork, regional delicacies, classes from a plethora of instructors and more.
The Great River Road area faces a number of challenges, organizers said, including the rapid proliferation of industrial sand mining and attendant processing plants.
“We hope to raise awareness about the potential costs as well as benefits to the expansion of frac sand mining in the region,” said Maiden Rock citizen Fred Harding. “It’s a complex issue that deserves thoughtful inspection before arriving at a conclusion.”
Admission will be $10 at the door for this family friendly event. More information, visit www.greatriverroadrevival.com.
Widespot is located at the Highway 35 and County Road J.
