Albertville Friendly City Days – the area’s official kick-off of summer – is ready to rock its way through the 30th anniversary celebration with eight bands over the second weekend of June.
Max Graham and Co., a hometown kid and his crew, will kick off the festival June 8 as the headliner. He’ll be preceded by the annual local garage band spotlight. Thursday is craft beer night, so don’t miss this special event.
The music continues Friday, June 9 with Crankshaft and the Gear Grinders, a honkytonk/R&B band that’s another regional favorite providing music at the annual pork chop dinner for STMA/North Wright County hockey. They’ll be followed by Mitch Gordon and the Unleaded Band on the Main Stage until 9 p.m., then Tripwire brings the concerts home Friday (with a brief intermission for the fireworks).
Saturday is all about 32 Below, who will close down the night with their set starting at 9:30 p.m. Prior to that, music fans can catch Ross Perry at the Lions Shelter, as well as the Shane Martin Band from 7 to 9 p.m. on the main stage.
Sunday, if you haven’t had your music fix, The Creeps will help us close down the festival with a set at 3 p.m. on the grounds.
If music isn’t your thing – don’t worry – Albertville Friendly City Days is packed with activities for all ages. For a complete schedule of events, go to Albertvillefriendlycitydays.com.
