BBQ & Bluegrass Festival Honors Veterans

8th Annual BBQ & Bluegrass Festival
Willow Mill Park
August 6, starting at 6pm

The Parks & Recreation Department collaborates with the Veterans Memorial Committee to raise funds for the Veterans Memorial of Silver Spring Township each year. The event, which originally began as “Concerts in the Park” in 2005 slowly evolved into a BBQ & Bluegrass Festival in 2010. With music and a variety of local vendors this event has something for everyone.

Applications for vendors will be available soon.

Veterans Committee Chairman, Kurt Minnich said most veterans are honored with a simple “thank you”. The generosity of those who attended, the vendors and sponsors punctuated their “thank you” with an exclamation point. The festival is a wonderful venue to gather the community to listen to bluegrass music, and to honor the sacrifices (of veterans) and inspire selfless service. Minnich added that the veterans memorial committee continues to sell brick pavers and granite plaques to honor veterans and support the memorial. You can visit for more information.
