Every summer here in the Pocono Mountains we ll try and figure out things to do to keep busy. For most of us adults we have work obligations that keep us from wasting the day away but each summer we all love to take some time for ourselves and take a break from our world. The same goes with families. Summer is the perfect time to relax our schedules a bit and take some time out for a trip. If you do plan on traveling with children, finding something for everyone to do can be challenging. We at Ledges Hotel love having our tiny guests just as much as our adult ones and enjoy finding activities that are suitable for everyone. One such annual event that is fun for the family is the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival in Honesdale, PA. Let’s check out what the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival is all about.
The Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival will be held June 20th, 2015 and will last for most of the day. What is the most amazing thing about the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival is that it is free. It’s hard to beat an awesome day filled with music that is absolutely free. The reason behind it is that it’s mission is to bring about music and art to the local people of not only Honesdale but the surrounding areas as well. There is something about growing up with an appreciation of music that rounds out your life.
There are two main areas for music at the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival, The Main Stage and Downtown. Both will have amazing musicians there all day. The line-up for this year hasn’t been announced yet but in the past the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival has had great bands like, Commander Cody, Big Leg Emma, MiZ, and The Farm Hands. Be sure to keep an eye out closer to the day of the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival to see who will be there this year.
While the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival is definitely all about the music, one other huge component is the arts side of it as well. Local artists will be filling up Artist’s Row with their pieces of art in various mediums. In the past there have been wooden tables, paintings, jewelry, stained glass mosaics, handcrafted soaps, clothes, and more. As you can see, the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival is filled with fun.
The last aspect of the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival that is a lot of fun to participate in is the raffle. The team at the Honesdale Roots and Rhythm Festival have some amazing prizes that can be won with their raffle. In the past it has been cash, tickets to concerts or festivals, TV’s, jewelry, as well as stays at local inns. You can buy raffle tickets at the festival or at one of the listed locations.
