‘Farm Raise Music Fest’ to Benefit Ben Richey Boys Ranch August 1
Farm Raise Music Festival will take place on Saturday, August 1st and will feature Kevin Fowler, Mark Powell, Hill Country (featuring Zane Williams), Bri Bagwell, Jerrod Medulla, and Abilene's own, Della Rose.
The event is presented by State Farm and will benefit Ben Richey Boys Ranch & Family Program.
Granted, we're still in the midst of social distancing, so the venue will open to 25% capacity (3500 patrons), so that means you'll need to get your tickets asap, before they're all gone. Tailgate spaces, 30 RV spots, and limited VIP tickets will also be available to purchase.
Gates will open at 11:30am with music starting at noon.
According to the press release:
“Farm Raise” is derived from the historic “Barn Raise” definition of ‘a collective action of a community to build or rebuild by members of the community’. Local restaurants will be onsite as vendors in an effort to rebuild lost income. Also, 30% of all ticket sales will go to Ben Richey Boys Ranch & Family Program, having lost three fund raising sources this year. [Farm Raise Music Fest Press Release]
Thanks to our awesome community, I'm sure there will be quite a bit of money raised for the boys ranch.
