Great music, good food & fun!
The city in conjunction with local country radio station Star Country 94.9, hosts a music festival with several country music artists. The Club provides volunteers to supervise the admission gates and sell beer, wine and sodas. The Club also obtains an ABC license and ensures that participants are of age to purchase alcoholic refreshments. The City of Salem allows BBQ vendors to set up at the venue and sell their culinary delights.
Our Club generally provides about 40 volunteers the day of the event. In addition, numerous hours ahead of the event are contributed to coordinate the festival resource requirements. The portion of the Rotary Club of Salem’s proceeds from this event are used to fund our Club’s community service projects.
