On the last Saturday in June for the past ten years, the Family Reunion Music Festival has celebrated life, togetherness, and a mutual love for creative expression at the Johnson Park Pavilion, 6200 Northwestern Ave. Racine, WI 53406. This event also serves as a fundraiser for the Racine Literacy Council and a non-perishable food collection site for the Racine County Food Bank. Event proceeds and food donations to date have reached over $30,000 and just shy of 4,000 pounds.
This year’s event is scheduled for June 30, from 2 – 10 p.m. Admission to the festival is $10 or $8 with two non-perishable food donations. Guests will receive four food tickets and one drink ticket with the price of admission. Children 6 and under are free. Attendees will enjoy food and drinks, an incredibly diverse array of entertainment, family and art activities, and the chance to win a supreme assortment of raffle and silent auction items.
