One Community Together Music Festival — Saturday


If you’re disappointed that there will be no Urbana Sweetcorn Festival this August, please do not despair.  The great music that is present within our wonderful community continues to play on this Saturday — although you’ll need to find your sweetcorn some place other than Urbana, Illinois.  Come to the Rose Bowl Tavern or listen to our live-stream broadcast, and sit down for a few minutes or the entire afternoon for great music.  Our music programming and children’s activities will take place rain or shine.  All of the music programs and children’s activities are Free and open to the general public.  So why not get your weekend off to a great start.  Hope to see you tomorrow afternoon.
