Inaugural edition of the Bellows Falls Festival set for June 10

BELLOWS FALLS — The Wild Goose Players, The Rotary Club of Bellows Falls, and local sponsors Mascoma Bank and M&T Bank have teamed up to create the first annual Bellows Falls Festival, The BFF, on Saturday, June 10, from 1 to 10 p.m.

The BFF is a one-day event that promises to be packed full of excitement and entertainment. The festival will take place outdoors at the Waypoint Center, 17 Depot St.

Food vendors Jamaican Jewelz, Bellows Falls Moose Club, Smokin' Bowls, and Tito's Taqueria will be on hand, with adult beverages provided by Donavan's, and lemonade and sweet treats available from Parks Place and the Bellows Falls Women's Club.

The BFF will include music and performances, including Ben Jennings Quartet's funky dance grooves and the Americana stories and dual harmonies of the Milk House Heaters, with Gaslight TInkers and Blue Motel rounding out the afternoon.

In the evening, The Mammals will bring their indie-folk ballads and fiddle and banjo-driven foot stompers, then singer-songwriter Sarah Borges takes the stage with a gritty mix of country, blues, and roots rock. Her music is described as “walking that fine line between punk and country.”

In addition to the music line-up, there will be plenty of other local artists performing throughout the day, including performances from the Wild Goose Players and Keene Pride.

This is a family friendly event, so participants are invited to bring the kids and a blanket or chairs. Chairs under the big tent will be provided and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
