The 2nd Annual Christmas Valley Music Festival


 

Greetings fellow revelers!

After the resounding success of last years Christmas Valley Music Festival at the Floweree Amphitheater and Singe-ing Santa Band Camp at the Rocker D Ranch, improvements and plans have assured that 2014’s Festival will be a bona fide hoot’n’holler!!!

Behold, the Music Tree

Behold, the Music Tree

At the Floweree, a large, new and permanent 32 channel sound system has been installed (by brothers Grant & Earl), the electrical system has been re-wired and updated, and permanent stage lighting has also been added. The city council and newspaper are fully behind us with advertising and community involvement increasing exponentially. So expect more vendors and larger audience to welcome us back.

While Mr. Floweree donated many thousands of dollars to finance improvements, none of this would have happened without the hustle, hard work and enthusiasm of the philanthropists, organizers, musicians and all you wonderous folks that attended last years festivities! You should all take pride in all that has been accomplished, thank you!!

We also be raffling off a brand spanking new Fender FA100 acoustic guitar, that has been graciously donated by Guitar Center’s Portland Meadows location, so a big thanks go out to them!

There are also rumors of a classic car rally dotting the festivals perimeter that is being organized by the Chamber of Commerce and local auto enthusiasts…more on this in future updates.


Out at the Rocker D, a large new permanent stage is being built & wired, complete with a 16 channel sound system, for all of us to jam, dance and play beneath the desert skies.
A new, large, sheltered outdoor cooking station has been built, the pool has been moved and improved and the goats have successfully completed the Bartenders Course at the local community college.

Our beautiful & fun web-site is being expanded continually. New features will include archaeological, geological and geographical histories, flora, fauna, hikes, day trips and scenic drives as well as other camping areas you may want to explore on your journey to or from the main events, (click on the REFERENCES section for this info).

REMEMBER FOLKS CAMPING SPACE AT THE ROCKER D IS LIMITED SO MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS SOON!!!

THANKS MUCH YA’LL!!

Funds collected will help to support the transportation, housing and food costs of the musicians and volunteers, that are so graciously donating their time, talents and energies to benefit the NORTH LAKE COUNTY CHILDREN’S FOOD BANK & POOL, Saturday August 16th at the Floweree Amphitheater in eastern Oregon’s picturesque, Christmas Valley.

The LOOSE CHANGE  boys (along with brother Earl), will be joined by many of the wonderful musicians, that gave their all, at last years inaugural event. The evening will feature members of…

  • DAKOTA BOB
  • The SINGEING SANTA DANCERS (you know who you are)!

We will be asking for a (sliding scale) $5.00-$10.00 donation per person.

We hope to see all the fine folks that made the pilgrimage last year, as well as those “newbies” planning to attend this years Festival. (If there’s anyone I missed please feel free to pass this invite along to others)!

So bring your dancing shoes and a few friends for an evening of community, with MUSIC, LIBATIONS, FRIENDS, FOOD & FUN!!
