ANNOUNCING VILLAGE FEST, THE ULTIMATE EVERETT STREET FAIR
The city of Everett and Mayor Carlo DeMaria are pleased to announce the Everett Village Fest, coming to the Village Business District, along Santilli Highway, on Saturday, September 19th, from 3-9 pm. The festival will feature legendary Jamaican band, The Wailers, as well as some of the area’s top food trucks, beer from Night Shift Brewery, spirits from Short Path Distillery and lawn games for everyone to play. Entry to the festival is FREE and will go on rain or shine.
There is no more legendary band in Jamaican music history than The Wailers. In the 70s Bob Marley and The Wailers became synonymous with Reggae music. Having sold over a quarter of a billion records and partnering with famous musicians (such as Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder and Sting), The Wailers have become a large part of the music world. The Wailers performance is graciously being sponsored courtesy of Wynn Everett. Also featured on the stage will be local favorites Ripe, Mount Peru, Jalopy, and Rebound.
Some of the area’s best food trucks will be on hand offering everything from lobster rolls to tasty BBQ to mushroom sliders, pizza, pasta, homemade ice cream sandwiches and so much more! Food trucks include Chowda Heads, Cupcake City, Frozen Hoagies, Mediterranean Home Cooking, Munch Mobile, North East of the Border, Pasta Pot, Roving Lunchbox, WOW BBQ and Yumm Bai.
Everett’s own Night Shift Brewing and Short Path Distillery will be on hand complementing the food trucks. Night shift will be pouring over 10 flagship and Oktoberfest beers. There will also be growlers, bottles, and other merchandise for purchase. For the cocktail lovers, Short Path Distillery will be serving their signature gin and white rum, along with other cocktails. Free non-alcoholic drinks will be provided by Polar beverages.
In addition to the music, food, and drinks, there will be lawn games and booths showcasing local businesses and organizations. It is a true city-wide celebration!
