End of Summer Festival brings the tunes posted on 09/01/2021

Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce has worked hard to help area businesses, including partnering with other chambers and Clackamas County for a business recovery center.

This month, the chamber will offer up some good vibes with its End of Summer Festival, similar to the annual Music Fair and Feast.

“It’s great to have something to focus on that’s positive,” said Khrys Jones, the chamber’s Executive Director. “From what I've heard, people are just ready to go do something.”

The event will take place on Friday, Sept. 10 and Saturday, Sept. 11 at Sandy’s Centennial Plaza, 39295 Pioneer Blvd. Friday night will feature two musical acts, the Wil Kinky Trio and Jennifer Batten and Full Steam, along with food and a beer garden (doors open at 5 p.m. and music ends at midnight).

Saturday’s offerings (doors open at noon and festivities run until midnight) will include the Sandy Kiwanis motorcycle show (winners announced at 2 p.m.), a Kid’s Zone activities area from noon to 6 p.m., family bingo at 3 p.m., a photo booth from 4-7 p.m. and live music starting at 4 p.m. The musical acts (in order) will be BBLUEZMANBAND at 4 p.m., Chris Carpenter & The Collective at 6 p.m. and Nightlife starting at 9 p.m.

Jones noted that the event features a few more local bands than in the past, offering more of a community feel, while some people may be familiar with Jennifer Batton for playing guitar with Michael Jackson.

Food offerings are expected to include barbeque, nachos, baked potatoes, pastries and more. Jones added that masks will be required, but she hopes to have plenty of tables and chairs available to help people spread out.

General admission tickets (good for one night) are $10, VIP one-night tickets (including no-line entrance, entrance for one day, two drink tickets and a commemorative koozie) are $20 and VIP two-night tickets (including no-line entrance, entrance for both days, four drink tickets and a commemorative koozie) are $35.

Further updates will be posted on the website and the chamber’s social media accounts.
