You may remember when I wrote about hunger in our country a short time ago (click here for the article). In it, I wrote about Joyful Noise IV a charity music and arts festival that is coming up this Saturday, June 25. (I know I wrote about it about a month ago, but it doesn't hurt to remind you!)
The event is held at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Applebachsville (in the suburbs of Quakertown), 837 Old Bethlehem Rd, Quakertown, PA, 18951. Gates open at 10AM and there will be fun and music running all day. There is NO cost, but you are encouraged to bring food items to be donated to the Quakertown Food Pantry as "admission". All proceeds from the day--from the sale of raffles and food and by "passing the bucket"--will be given to the Pantry. In the 3 previous Joyful Noise festivals, over $16,000 have been donated.
Come out and see some beautiful classic cars at our car show. Find out about the historic church building with a church tour. Kids' activities run all day. Take in the work of many local artists and crafters. Buy raffle tickets for a variety of great prizes. And don't forget all the great food there to sustain you throughout the day: pulled pork, burgers and dogs, waffles and ice cream, fresh fruit salad and much more.
But music rules the day. You'll hear a wide variety of musical styles and performances throughout the day--culminating with Ceili Rain, an incredibly energetic Celtic-rock band that will lift your spirits and get your feet moving. Click here for my other post that tells more about the other performers.
So bring your sunscreen, a chair or blanket, a big appetite and get ready for a full day of fun for a great cause. Hope to see you there!
