Rooster Walk 7 Debuts New Venue

“You know that feeling when you pull out a jacket you haven’t worn in a while, reach into a pocket, and find money you didn’t know was in there? That’s a mild approximation of how I felt when I found the Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival essentially in my backyard. It’s inexplicable that I’d never heard of this festival until this year’s seventh edition, but it showed up in my feed when three local bands on the bill began publicizing it. I wasn’t planning to attend, since I’d just returned from a festival in Florida on Monday, but by Tuesday I’d arranged the time off from work and bought my ticket. It turned out to be one of the best spur-of-the-moment decisions I’ve ever made.” Click HERE.

C-PEG chief explains duties

“I would highly encourage anyone to go,” he said. “It speaks well of our community, because really this started with two young people in our community as a way to honor their two friends who passed away. Johnny Buck and William Baptist have turned it into something that is renowned on the East Coast. This event could not have reflected better on our community.” Read the full story HERE.

“Words simply can’t justify the incredible time I had at Rooster Walk this past weekend. I was so impressed with every element of this festival from the talent, new venue, rooster family, vendors, weather and so much more. I had a blast working on the RW7 video crew and managed to shoot some still photographs as well, so check ‘em out! This is definitely a festival I’ll keep near to my heart. I can’t wait to see you beautiful roosters struttin’ your stuff next year.” Click HERE.
