The Radio Waves Music Festival is an annual, community outreach event and has become a tradition for visitors, area residents, and performing musicians. Several vendors will be on-site with food/beverages. Outside food and beverages are accepted on the grounds as well. Some chairs are provided under the tent, but feel free to bring your own. This is a kid-friendly event, this year, all kids under 12 will receive prizes at the gate. A note that your well-behaved pets are welcome – but please make sure they’re on a leash at all times.
