Woohoo – it’s official – our Special Event Permit was approved at this week’s City Council meeting – Charlotte’s Web’s 40th Anniversary Celebration will be Saturday June 2 from 1 to 9 (or so) on the Mendelssohn PAC Campus! (415 N. Church St. & 420 N. Main St. in Rockford, IL)

 

Finally, we can finalize and begin telling you about it!

 

40th Megalist

 

Gates open at 1PM and…

 

May I say right from the beginning: we are so incredibly grateful that you support live music! You are the reason I do what I do so thank you.

 

The event is shaping up nicely and I do believe it’ll be the best birthday party yet!

 

Below is the basic plan and I ask you to keep in mind that absolutely everything is subject to change :-)

 

1PM gates open

 

Silent Auction items & services in Emerson House on the main floor. The piano in the room will be freshly tuned and we will have a simple PA set up in case an artist feels the urge to play a tune or two.

 

The food for sale will be in the 3-season room of Emerson House.

 

The bar will be just outside the 3-season room of Emerson House.

 

The outside stage will be between Emerson House and 1st Presbyterian Church

 

The inside stage will be inside Mendelssohn PAC.

 

The entire Mendelssohn PAC campus will be enclosed so entrants are free to roam with beer in hand between buildings and around.

 

And as for music...wow. 

 

The one, the only: James Lee Stanley has graciously accepted the role of emcee for the day.

 

1:30 outside stage kicks off with Piper Road Spring Band
