Haverford Music Fest was a great success

This year, for the first time the Haverford Township Civic Council came together to plan and organize a huge music festival in the Oakmont business area of the town.

From 12 noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 17, live music was performed from two outdoor stages. Performers included Paul Mariani III, a 6th grader showing off his solo vocals, Haverford High School’s Chorus and Rumours, a Fleetwood Mac tribute band. Other genres of music performed include jazz, pop, folk, Christian, punk, techno, Irish and raggae.

“We are very proud of the quality of performers we have to offer in the festival’s first year, most of which are local,” said Tom Kelly, the festival’s Director and Master of Ceremonies.

Music was not the festival’s only allure. Food and drink vendors were dispersed throughout the area, as were street vendors from mostly local businesses.

A highlight of the event was that the Philadelphia Eagles donated two autographed footballs to be given away during a raffle. One ball was signed by Michael Vick and the other by Nnamdi Asomugha.

Approximently 7,000 people attended the event. Because of it’s great success, The Haverford Music Fest will coninue as an annual event.

The Haverford Music Fest took place thanks to the generosity of its sponsors and volunteers. To be a part of the music and fun next year as a volunteer, sign up at:
