The Victory BrewGrass Fest This Saturday!
Trexlertown, Pa. – The Victory BrewGrass Festt presented by Service Electric and The Mountain Folk Show will be held at the world-class Valley Preferred Cycling Center, Trexlertown, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, September 21, 2013, rain or shine. The Valley Preferred Cycling Center is a mecca for top track cyclists from around the world including national, world and Olympic champions. The facility, known as “the velodrome” to thousands of loyal fans, is currently run by three-time world champion and America’s only-ever Olympic Gold Medal track cyclist, Marty Nothstein and his team.
This festival will be held after the regular racing season and will be used in part as a fund raising event to help the facility continue its mission to provide an excellent learning, training and racing facility, as well as to promote the sport of human-powered competition, recreation and transportation, through cycling.
Major sponsors include Victory Brewing which, in addition to creating world-class craft beers, is a long term supporter of cycling. Presenting sponsors include Service Electric Cable TV and Communications which will be broadcasting the entire festival on live cable TV. Also Mountain Laurel Productions, producers of the Mountain Folk Radio, TV & Web shows, which will be recording the entire main stage concert performances, live for radio, satellite, Internet and eventual CD production of the 2013 event.
- The Fest will be presenting a minimum of ten great bands representing the best of regional acts to top end national and internationally-known talent. Bands include The Central Valley Boys from California, making their first appearance on the East Coast, Nashville super star and XM/Sirius Satellite Radio host & musician, Chris Jones and the Night Drivers, the award-winning East Side Dave & The Mountain Folk Band, top regional band Big Valley, and many other bands and musicians.
- Music will run non-stop from Noon to 9 p.m. at two different stage areas and the music will be staggered by fifteen minutes per area so that there is never a dull moment or lull in the entertainment. The main stage area for bands will be in the infield of the velodrome track between the 3rd and 4th turns. Another smaller and more laid back performance tent will be at the entrance and food court area of the facility.
There is plenty of seating in all areas in the front or back stretch bleachers and concert-goers are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to setup on the infield at the main stage area. No coolers or food/beverages will be allowed in the facility. There will be a large selection of delicious food items, refreshing brews and various vendor tents.
