Sara Petite and a variety of exceptional music artists will rock Dos Picos County Park during the sixth annual Ramona Music Fest on Saturday, April 27.
The event will feature headlining acts, well-established performers and exciting local talent, said Craig Jung, event chairman.
Among those set to appear on two stages are the Combos, Harry Joe Reynolds, Ramona High School Royal Blues Jazz Band, the Shirthouse Bluegrass Band, and Roy Rapid and the Rhythm Rock Trio. Musical styles will include ska, rock, Americana, rockabilly, blues, jazz and bluegrass.
Beer-and-wine gardens will be open near the stages, and food and drinks will be available for purchase.
The park’s stages, surrounded by picturesque oak trees and overlooking a scenic pond, are the perfect setting for enjoying great music while socializing with friends, said Jung.
The fun-filled event will begin at noon and end at 5 p.m. Guests can enjoy the music along with games, live auctions, drawings, and prizes.
Two featured opportunity drawing prizes will be awarded — first prize, an Apple iPad 2, and second prize, an Apple iPod Touch. Tickets are $25, available at the event and from Rotary or Kiwanis club members. A maximum of 300 tickets will be sold.
Youngsters are invited to participate in supervised games and activities during the event.
“Come on out for a good time, nice weather and beautiful music!” said Jung.
The park is at 17953 Dos Picos Park Road off Mussey Grade Road. General adult admission tickets are $20 if purchased by April 19, and $25 at the gate, where credit card payments will be accepted.
Tickets for ages 11 to 17 are $10, and children 10 and under enter free. Ramona’s active military personnel and their families may also attend free with ID.
