The 9th annual Johnnycake Music Festival will be held on Saturday, June 8th from 3-9pm at Johnnycake Mountain Farm in Burlington.
The Festival is an annual event that brings the whole community together through music.
It is one of Make a Mark’s staple fundraisers along with the annual Chess Tournament and provides an environment the whole family can enjoy in the early summer months.
Last year over 1,400 people attended the Music Festival.
The fund provides grants to Region 10 students and teachers for creative and innovative educational practices that are not normally funded by the Board of Education.
Partnering with the Burlington Lions Club, the Make a Mark team is able to put on this event where local bands perform, kids play, and everyone can listen to music.
The festival is the embodiment of what the Make a Mark Enrichment Fund is all about: bringing the community together.
While the music plays, children can enjoy a bounce house and games or join other families in pickup games of baseball, frisbee and cornhole that they have brought to the event.
Bring your own chairs and blankets and enjoy food from the Lions Club grill or bring your own picnic and beverages.
The festival will conclude with a fireworks display at dusk.
