Wnti Stage - August 15, 16, 17
The WNTI Stage festival is getting a "reputation." A darn good reputation. Presented by the hugely popular WNTI Radio in partnership with Kennedy Events Services, WNTI Stage, now in its third year, takes place at the Lions Pavilion on Route 46 in Knowlton Township and has become a weekend-long party for music lovers. This year the event is taking place Aug. 15-17, and offers the same kind of great music everyone has become accustomed to, from acoustic singer-songwriters to some good old rock 'n roll. And of course there's plenty of food, beverages and an amazing array of vendors.
Among the featured acts throughout the weekend will be Willie Nile with James Maddock, Marshall Crenshaw, Spuyten Duyvil, The Grand Slambovians, Todd Wolfe with John Ginty, Grover Kemble, Billy Hector, and the shaking good salsa band, La Fueza Da Positiva. In all, there will be more than 20 musical acts over the three-day weekend.
Friday hours are 6-10 p.m., Saturday, noon-10 p.m., and Sunday, noon-7 p.m. The charge for admittance is just $10 Friday and Sunday (each day), and $20 on Saturday, with children 12 and under free. Parking is free.
The food menu is as diverse as the music, with everything from seafood to vegetarian to American Classic food available. Vendors selling a variety of products from jewelry to funky T-shirts will also be on hand.
Major sponsors for WNTI Stage are Knowlton Lions Club and the Knowlton Township Cultural and Heritage Commission.
Organizers only ask that coolers and pets be left at home.
