Boltonstock 2017 Arrives on June 3

Merdalf opens the evening

After the Boundary Block Party, come on over to Sumpter Park for the official after-party, Boltonstock 2017, Saturday, June 3, 5–10 pm. This annual summer festival celebrates its third year, thanks to organizers Chas Phillips and Jessica Wyatt.

The musical lineup opens with street musician Merdalf, who has delighted the crowds at the Waverly and JFX farmers’ markets. He’s promised to bring his balloons!

Things will kick up a notch with Baltimore blues band The Cleanse, featuring the distinctive growling vocals and wailing guitar work of Quinton Randall. “I want audiences to feel a sense of hope, clarity, and freedom,” says Quinton of his music.

The evening wraps up with DJ Uncle Quincy, whose grooves will have everyone dancing in the park.

During the break in the music, representatives from the Holistic Life Foundation will help recenter the crowd by introducing their mindfulness techniques, providing a moment of calm for festival-goers.

Grilled food will be available for purchase, including burgers and hotdogs, plus—back by popular demand—Catoctin Mountain Farm bratwurst. Quench your party thirst with a nice selection of wine and craft beers. And the famous Memorial Episcopal Bake Sale will be back, with proceeds going to the church.

Plenty of kids’ activities will be available, including some game-ready sports equipment. As with last year’s event, local non-profit organizations will have tables surrounding the park to explain their work and how folks can get involved.

Help spread the word, and bring lots of friends. RSVP and follow the event on Facebook to show your support.

      Hi Marti – I have been enjoying the Marble Hill Assoc. meetings and meeting more neighbors. Already sent you the info about the free community tables – that would be great if you could staff one. Hope to see you tomorrow at Boltonstock 2017.
