New Arts And Music Festival Set For June 5 In Fall River
On Sunday, June 5, from 1pm to 11pm, the Troy City Rising will bring musicians and artists for a day-long festival at the Liberal Club on 20 Star Street.
According to The Herald News, “the first-time event is a team effort of newly created non-profit South Coast Artists, a group of musicians, painters, designers, other artists, and one politician.”
The group, which was formed in February, will bring 10 hours of live music to multiple stages, rows of local artist tables selling their wares, live artist demonstrations, a “food truck alley” offering a plethora of cultural and American foods, kid-friendly activities, and beer and wine tasting.
The 150,000-square-foot space can accommodate up to 15,000 people and will use both the inside and outside of the Liberal Club.
Genres of music will range from rap to rock, and country to eclectic. “Some of the musicians and entertainers performing at the event include headliner Sarah Borges, Rebecca Correia, The Portuguese Kids, Phantom Orchestra, Milo Bigwig, Operation Mayhem Official, The Little Compton Band, Kaysell, Louis Leeman, and the Mercury Brothers.”
The cost for admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids from the age of 12 to 17. Kids under the age of 12 will be allowed to enter for free.
