RedFest Rocks Night To Give Back To Community

An idea in 2011 to help three families devastated by a tornado has lead to a tradition of rock and roll  and country and generosity in Toney, Alabama.  The organizers as well as the attendees have raised funds for several organizations including the Multiple Sclerosis Society and different branches of cancer research as well as area children and their families fighting illness.

RedFest 2015 will help the family of Raegan Morell, a 9-month old girl from Athens who has been battling congenital heart disease and other complications since her birth.  Little Raegan has been at Children's Hospital Birmingham pretty much from day 1.  She has undergone a heart transplant, GI tubes, central lines and recently had portions of her small intestines removed - just to list of few things she has overcome.   

Attendees for this year's RedFest will enjoy music from bands like Section 8, Highwyre, Free Range, Big Kountry, and The Cain's.  Plus an extra treat when Todd Stovall will be joined onstage by Will Mcmeans and also former members of the country group Heartland including Keith West, Mike Myerson, Craig Anderson and Todd Anderson. 

Concession will be available from The Lunch Box, Scott Farms and the Morell Family.  Bring your chairs and coolers (please no glass bottles) and enjoy the music, food and selection of local vendors on hand.

Admission is $10.00 and children 12 and under are free.

To enjoy the music, gates open at 5:30PM and music start at 6:15PM.
