Last year’s event filled downtown Tyler with live music and comedy, but organizer Trent Spradlin is making this year’s iteration even more robust with a more diverse range of musicians, displays by local artists and even some short films by local filmmakers.
The musical lineup includes newcomers Maegan Brooks, Sideshow Tragedy, Backseat Molly, The Young Ones, Manny and The Gringaderos and The Sixth String Boys. Returning acts include Ramoth Gilead, Something Blue and headliners Uncle Lucius.
One of the biggest standouts of the festival’s newcomers, though, is Maegan Brooks, Spradlin said. Brooks’ talents so highly impressed him that Spradlin rearranged the performance schedule and booked an additional stage just to make certain she’d have proper space to perform.
The art on display has been donated by local artists, with each piece being sold via silent auction to benefit the Liberty Hall Foundation. The music begins at 3 p.m., the short films will begin screening at 5 p.m. inside Liberty Hall.
Tickets are available for $30 at the door.
