Street Fest returns
Shepherdstown Street Fest, presented by Morgan Academy is set to return for it’s ninth festival Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.. In 2013 the event attracted approx. 8,000 people to downtown Shepherdstown, the oldest town in the state and raised $11,250 in charitable donations. Shepherdstown Street Fest, a fund-raiser, names two non-profit charities, one regional and one local, that benefit from their proceeds. The 2015 regional non-profit is CASA-EP, Court Appointed Special Advocates of the Eastern Panhandle. The local non-profit is Shepherdstown Day Care who provides sliding-scale tuition, and educational experiences for children from 12 weeks to 10 years.
With two live music stages hosting national and local acts such as Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, and Johnny Neel from The Allman Brothers, over 60 artisans, Morgan Academy Kids’ Camp – A Bucket’s Choice, and a beer/wine garden with a wide variety of food vendors, Shepherdstown Street Fest truly has entertainment for all ages.
Shepherdstown Street Fest is filled with high-quality artisans, festival bands, a fun-filled day for kids, and much more – and the best part is that it’s free admission, free parking and free shuttle service.
Come spend the weekend in Shepherdstown and be sure to ask local hotels & B&B about the special SSF Rate. Immediately following the end of the festival is the Official After-Party at Opera House LIVE featuring live music with free admission.
