Get Ready to Rock at the Seventh Annual Orting Rock Festival!
JULY 15, 2023 - 12:00 - 9PM
Calling all music lovers! The Orting Rock Festival is back for its seventh year, and it promises to be a rockin' event you won't want to miss. Held in the picturesque Orting City Park in Washington on Saturday, July 15th, this festival is not just about great music—it's about making a positive impact in the community.
Organized by the Orting Rock Festival Association, a 501c3 nonprofit, this event aims to support two incredible causes: The Orting Food Bank and The Haven Teen Center. Instead of selling tickets, the festival asks attendees to make a monetary donation or bring non-perishable food items for entry. This unique approach allows everyone to participate while giving back to those in need.
One of the primary beneficiaries of this event is the Orting Food Bank's Summer Lunch program, which helps feed the children of Orting during the gap between June and September. By attending the Orting Rock Festival and contributing to the food drive, you can directly support this vital initiative and help fill the shopping carts with much-needed supplies for the kids.
But that's not all—the festival has an exciting lineup of rock 'n' roll-related items up for grabs in their raffle. Prepare to be blown away by the incredible prizes they've gathered. Among the highlights are a beautifully handcrafted American steel guitar and a stunning Jimi Hendrix drawing created by talented local artist Kris Weiler. Plus, rock fans will be thrilled to hear about the autographed REO Speedwagon drumhead and the Woodstick 2013 drumhead signed by legends like Alan White, Tony Coleman, and Donn Bennett.
If that's not enough to get you excited, there are also two tickets to see Third Eye Blind at the Washington State Fair and two tickets to catch The Rockfords on July 29th at The Showbox. And for all the aspiring rockstars out there, you'll have a chance to win a sweet electric guitar from Canyon Guitars. Raffle tickets will be sold on the day of the event, with the drawing taking place after the festival concludes. Remember, you don't need to be present to win, but you must be present to purchase the tickets.
As for the music lineup, get ready for an unforgettable day of original artists rocking the stage. The 2023 Orting Rock Festival has locked in an impressive roster of talented musicians and bands, including MTR Project, Strangely Alright, Souls Worn Thin, Stargazy Pie, Polly Slanderous, Batbox, and The E. With such a diverse range of performers, there's something for every rock enthusiast to enjoy.
So mark your calendars for Saturday, July 15th, and head over to Orting City Park from noon until nine. Not only will you experience an incredible day of live music, but you'll also have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Remember, there's no entry fee—just bring your generous spirit and a passion for rocking out for a cause.
Come together with fellow music lovers, support local charities, and enjoy the electrifying atmosphere of the Orting Rock Festival. Join us in making this year's event the most successful one yet. Together, we can create a harmonious blend of music, community, and goodwill. Let's rock!
