“Abe Fest” Happening July 19th & 20th Downtown


With all of these downtown festivities happening and more being announced right around now, we bring you even more downtown festival news today – this time news of a very brand new festival happening right smack dab in the middle of summer! This one is called “Abe Fest” and it is happening on Friday and Saturday July 19th and 20th for the first time this summer. Headlining bands include The BoDeans for Friday night (American rock group from Wisconsin active since 1983) and The Smithereens on Saturday Night (alternative rock group active since 1980 from New Jersey). There was a nice article in the State Journal Register about the festival, online right here (sorry, we can’t see it because we haven’t subscribed online to SJ-R articles, we do try to buy the paper every once in a while though).  Local 1990s rock group The Spoonbenders will be uniting for the festival as well.

We can’t seem to find the full lineup or schedule for the fest listed out right now (or maybe it hasn’t been released yet), but you can be sure to follow Abe Fest on facebook for any festival updates as they come.
