Kent Heritage Festival...June 30th!
With July 4th falling in the middle of the week on a Wednesday this year, please note that the 23rd Annual Kent Heritage Festival will be held on Saturday, June 30th. The all-day celebration held in downtown Kent runs from 9:00 am - 11:00 pm. Fireworks will be set off from Kramer Ball Fields at 10:00 pm.
The event will include live music and entertainment – much of which is local – all day on three stages located throughout downtown Kent.
There will be a children’s play area that will include a rock climbing wall and bouncy house for kids of all ages to enjoy. There will be a variety of food and craft booths, and many more local displays. The family-friendly event that is FREE and open to the public, concludes with a fireworks display at 10:00 pm.
A Classic Car Show, sponsored by Brimfield Insurance, will be located on West Erie and on North Franklin Street. Interested car owners who would like to participate are encouraged to get there early for a good spot. Paul Braden, owner of Woodsys’ does an amazing job coordinating the entertainment acts to perform on three stages throughout the festival. This year, for the first time during the Festival, the stage in the Dan Smith Community Park will feature live music sponsored by AMETEK.
The Kent Heritage Festival is organized and operated by the Kent Area Chamber of Commerce, and a committee of committed volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure that the event that draws nearly 25,000 to downtown Kent, is a success. It is important to note that the success of the Kent Heritage Festival depends largely on the vendors who participate and the sponsorships and contributions received.
Bring the family and plan to attend this year’s Kent Heritage Festival on June 30th!
