Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Summer 2019 73 Creedmoor Music Festival Saturday, Sept. 21, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The 28th annual Creedmoor Music Festival takes center stage Saturday, Sept. 21. The family friendly event boasts more than 100 craft and food vendor booths lining downtown Main Street, while talented artists representing bluegrass, blues, country, and rock play all day on two stages. The lineup includes Rhythm Express Band and River Ratz Band, among others. TK's Annual Car Show takes place at the same time on the south end of the festival. See cityofcreedmoor.org/ MusicFestival for more details. St. John's Fall Festival & FUN-Raiser Saturday, Oct. 19, 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Mark your calendars for St. John's ½VWX*EPP*IWXMZEPERH*926EMWIV scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 19, at the church at 834 Durham Road in Wake Forest. St. John's invites children, parents, grandparents, and all ages to enjoy a community event, with event planners deliberately choosing the phrase Fall Festival ERH±*92VEMWIV²VEXLIVXLER "Fund-raiser," since the emphasis is on 'fun,' said lead organizer Cora Ogden, although fund- raising is part of the equation too, with proceeds going toward renovating the St. John's Episcopal Preschool playground. The entry fee is $2 for adults and $1 for children 5 and older, and visitors can enjoy listening to live blue grass music, chatting with car owners in a small classic car show, and discovering Touch-Me-Trucks with the youngsters, who will also enjoy the bouncy house, face painting, and other kids-only activities. As part of the fund-raiser, visitors can enjoy a picnic lunch, to be served in the parish hall, with grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, sausages with onions and peppers, homemade side dishes, desserts, and drinks. The rain date is Nov. 9. St. John's Episcopal Church's motto is "Love your neighbor. No exceptions." For more information, contact Cora Ogden, ogden.cora@gmail.com, or the Rev. Sarah Phelps, rector, 919-556-3656. Saturday, Oct. 5 The 3rd annual The Wake Forest Dance Festival, which bills itself as the Triangle's only outdoor dance festival featuring international and national performers, returns to E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road. Families, performing arts enthusiasts, and the public will celebrate the art of dance during the free festival, which brings a day of dance in an outdoor, wooded setting. "It's an honor to bring professional artists of such high caliber to this free, public event for a third year in a row," said festival director Mariya "Masha" Dashkina Maddux, a Wake Forest resident and former principal dancer with the Martha Graham Dance Company in New York City.
