HONK! Festival 2013 - mark your October calendars for the 8th annual fest of activist street bands
Time to mark the calendar for the eighth annual HONK! Festival (www.honkfest.org) which will take place from October 11-14 throughout the neighborhoods of Somerville and Cambridge. MA.
By: HONK! Festival
This year several new national and international groups will be featured, as well as returning festival favorites, some who are local and several who come from afar. In the works are many concerts, one very large parade, some mini parades, a roundtable discussion, and much more. The preliminary HONK! schedule, which will be finalized in early September, can be found at www.honkfest.org/
As of this writing, a few late summer/early fall activities are in place, for those who would like to get involved early on:
HONK! Kickstarter campaign: details can be found at www.honkfest.org/
HONK! Volunteer Appreciation Pep Rally: tentatively scheduled for the evening of September 15 at Sprout, 339R Summer St. near Davis Square, Somerville (www.thesprouts.org). More information will be available after Labor Day weekend.
