From all around the country, musicians and artists will be converging on Harford County in June for a major two day music attraction. The First Annual Lunar Bay Music and Arts Festival, grown from the roots of Havre de Grace, is expected to see more than 45 bands on four different stages during the two day festival.
Set to run June 29 and 30, The First Annual Lunar Bay Music and Arts Festival will make its debut featuring jam fan-friendly acts like Moe, Keller Williams, Steve Kimock and more.
The Festival grew quite naturally through the desire of Margie Coakley, Genevieve Britton and Kelley Duncan, the ladies of locust, to want to bring the festival experience home to the local Harford County community.
“As the ladies of locust we are aiming to bring momentum to a positive energy train and want everyone on board. Local threads through the community bring unique art, food and music to our backyards. This is a journey, not just an event and we believe if the seed is planted the people will nurture and determine its final destiny,” the ladies of locust explained.
Located on 500 acres surrounded by the Susquehanna river at the Steppingstone Museum in the Susquehanna State Park, this two day festival will also include the Cirque Oya-Hula hoops, fire throwers, aerial artists, Avail the mechanical bull and moon bounce, Stage painter-Justin Ritmiller and unique food and art vendors.
Proceeds from the Festival will help local non-profits including Susquehana Farm Museum, Murals of Grace, Believe in Music, Pets on Wheels, and The ARC.
“Believe in Music is very excited to partner with the Lunar Bay Music & Arts Festival. We’re thrilled that a festival promoting music & arts wants to invest in promoting early music education for future generations,” Kenny Liner, Founder of Believe in Music explained.
With a Lunarade Stand with Lunarade girls for fresh lemonade and ice cold kegoraters for the exclusive VIP, and food from Coakley’s Irish Pub, Backfin Blues Bar and Grill, Carnival Food, First State Catering and more, even the most discriminating palate will be appeased.
Maryland’s own KHZ Radio/TV Network will be on hand broadcasting live for those that have to miss some of the excitement.
“We are really excited to be a part of such an exciting music festival. The Lunar Bay Music Festival will become a widely anticipated annual event that will draw crowds from all over the country,” VJ Tracy Hart explained.
