Saturday October 25 ~ 20th Annual Fall Festival ~ Daniel Pearl World Music Days ~
3:00 pm - 10:30 pm, Join us for our 20th Annual Fall Festival! We will have musical performances scheduled beginning in the afternoon through the evening, and you'll be treated to our grill offerings too!
Daniel Pearl World Music Days was created in response to the 2002 kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl at the hands of extremists in Karachi, Pakistan. Danny's family and friends came together to work towards a more humane world, forming the Daniel Pearl Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to promote cross-cultural understanding through journalism, music, and innovative communications.
Danny was a talented musician who joined musical groups in every community in which he lived, leaving behind a long trail of musician-friends spanning the entire world. Commemorating Danny's October 10th birthday, World Music Days uses the universal language of music to encourage fellowship across cultures and build a platform for "Harmony for Humanity." This is the 13th Annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days - come share with us and support Danny’s belief that music, journalism and dialogue can build bridges across cultural divides and help achieve international friendship.
We will have performances from Ben Jacobs, Jane Murdock, Short In The Saddle, Paisley Yankolovich, Alan Tuft, and more! The day is a fun time sharing songs and stories, and is a neat little fundraiser as well, helping us to pay our annual licensing fees, order coffee, buy new coffee gear and cookies, you know - the usual stuff!! Thanks for all of your support for these festivals - and see you Saturday at Fiddler's Dream!! Check our Facebook events page for performance schedule updates.
Admission is $5 for the whole day! Doors open at 2:30 pm.
