Foscoe Ruritan Club’s Homegrown Music Festival will take place at 1 p.m. in the Foscoe-Grandfather Community Center Park on Saturday, Aug. 10.

This fundraiser helps the Ruritan Club to serve their community. Following their mantra, “Fellowship, goodwill and community service,” the Ruritan Club is focused on helping its community through any devastating event. This event is family-friendly and alcohol-free.

This festival is returning for its fifth year, and it is the Ruritan’s club main fundraiser that allows them to serve the Foscoe community. These funds have previously been used to assist individuals and participate in programs and events such as Santa’s Toy Box, recognizing veterans on Veteran’s Day, contributing to medical and utility expenses for community members and awarding two $500 scholarships for higher education, which the club does at this festival.

Performing artists include Adam Church, High Country Boomers, Bethel Road, Dollar Brothers and Blue Country. Music begins at 2 p.m., with each performing act taking the stage for one hour.

There will be prizes awarded throughout the day, including a $100 gift card and a $500 gift card. The raffle will be for a trip with the value of $1,300. Ticket prices are $5 or five tickets for $20 for the raffle. The club will be serving hotdogs and hamburgers throughout the festival.

At the end of the evening, at 7 p.m., the informal jam session begins. Festival attendees are welcome to join other artists on the main stage to collaborate.

Tickets for the Homegrown Music Festival are $10 at the gate for adults, $6 for children ages 6-12 and children less than six years of age are free. Advance tickets are available for adults at $8 per person over 12 years old. Call Sue Moore at (828) 963-5038 or Denise Stahl at (828) 963-6185 for more information or to purchase advance tickets.
