In the summer of 1969, five hundred thousand young people converged on a dairy farm in rural New York for "three days of peace and music". "Woodstock" defined a generation.
In celebration of the Woodstock, Grangestock 2011 will be presented, an outdoor festival of fun, food & music at the Orangevale Grange's beautiful natural amphitheatre.
Grangestock will feature more than a dozen “far out” bands and entertainers from across the state, providing music and laughs for a day-long celebration of Woodstock and an era that brought us hippies, hot pants & Hubert Humphrey. The festivities will last until “whenever, man”, ending by 10:00pm. A $10.00 donation per adult will be accepted at the event.
A list of musical acts scheduled to play throughout the day includes: The Grangeful Dead, M3 Squared, William Mylar, Mary's Daughter, Karma Addicts, Leftovers, KD, and Rio Linda Swap Thing.
Grangestock’s motto is “Let Your Freak Flag Fly!” In homage to the flower children of the sixties, attendees are encouraged to wear tie-dye shirts, let down their hair and start-up the old Volkswagen bus. Prizes will be awarded for the best-dressed hippies, best 60's and 70's celebrity impersonators.
Grangestock is “groovy” for families, too. Planned activities include Zodiac Readings, a Hippie Parade, and “cool” vendors. “Alice’s Restaurant” will feature delicious healthy snacks as well as more traditional hot dogs, hamburgers, and cold drinks.
It's all in fun and for a good cause. Donations paid at the event will benefit Grange programs, including G.R.E.A.T. (Grange Relief Emergency Action Team), a program providing emergency assistance to victims of natural disasters. G.R.E.A.T. was started after five Grange families lost their homes in the summer of 2008 in Northern California wildfires.
Grangestock will take place on May 21, 2011 starting at 11:00am at the Orangevale Grange’s beautiful natural amphitheatre located at 5807 Walnut Avenue. A $10.00 donation per adult will be accepted at the event.
