The Mum Festival Committee announced over 20 hours of live music and entertainment at this year’s Mum Festival.
The Festival will run from September 21 – 24 and will feature over 14 bands and performers playing over 20 hours of live music from local and regional favorites to bands attracting national attention.
The 2017 festival will feature two entertainment venues – a main stage on the school grounds adjacent to the carnival and a stage east location midway down the Memorial Boulevard just past the tennis courts.
“Our focus on music and live entertainment has made the Mum Festival a statewide must attend event”, said Maria Salice, Mum Festival Arts and Entertainment Chair.
“In keeping with our theme of “Home is Where the Heart Is” we are showcasing several local bands and entertainers as well as performers from throughout the state. There is truly something for everyone throughout the four days of the Festival.”
“What would a Mum Festival be without entertainment?”, said Jack Ferraro, Mum Festival Chairman.
“With this in mind, we have made sure that this year’s festival includes plenty of live entertainment to entertain people of all ages and we can’t wait to see all the acts take the stage in a few weeks”
