"Where Summer Lasts a Week Longer"
(Note: The 30th Annual Reisterstown Festival Dates will be September 11 & 12, 2016)
On SATURDAY, our classic Reisterstown Festival Parade kicks things off at 9:00am by marching down Main Street to the Festival Grounds with lots for all to see and enjoy. Marching bands, fire equipment, antique and sports cars, motorcycles, community groups, businesses, and many more march and ride and spread the community spirit in this traditional main street parade!
At the festival site at Hannah More Park, Main Stage entertainment on Saturday runs the full day from 11am to 10pm and includes some really great acts of many types -- something for everyone! This year's bands include:
The Ron Holloway Band, Dawgone with Special Guest Mookie Siegel, Jr. Cline and the Recliners, Ursula Ricks Project, The LutherVillains and Josh Christina & Good Old Stuff
The Reisterstown Festival Motorcycle Show will run from 12pm to 4pm in the Hannah More Center parking lot with an assortment of motorcycles competing for prizes in various categories.
There will be many tables and chairs provided, but feel free to bring your chairs or blankets if you prefer to reserve your favorite spot to watch the bands.
The Beer Garden, located on the lower fields behind the school, includes beer and wine of many types, and will also offer games. There will be a large screen TV for staying up on all the Orioles and Ravens action and other sports. This is also a great spot to catch a great view of the entertainment on the Main Stage. There are new food and craft vendors participating- the food selection will be greatly expanded compared to prior years.
Always popular is is our expansive Family Fun Area (formerly Children's Area). The Family Fun Area, which is located near the playground, has live interactive entertainment that will be appreciated by all ages including multiple live performers, audience participation programs, and special child-oriented vendors. A mechanical bull built for safety will be available to try. As always, the Sunshine Playground will also be available for the kids too!
The traditional big 50/50 Drawing and Festival Raffle Baskets that are sure to put a smile on your face should you win.
Don’t miss the always-popular Fireworks show Saturday at 8:45pm. This will coincide with the final band on the Main Stage, The Ron Holloway Band.
