The 3rd Annual NEWBERRY EVENT Music & Arts Festival to Defeat MS July 24, 25 & 26th, 2015
In 2013, Doug and Gloria Watt started with a goal: To help give exposure to our local musicians, artisans, and crafters, and at the same time, raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.
With the help of big names like Terry Robb, Lino Alessio, and Folk Rock Legends Brewer & Shipley (The "One Toke Over the Line" boys), they put on one of the biggest events South Central Oregon (Newberry Country) has ever seen!
This year, we were thrilled to have performances by Craig Chaquico (formerly of Jefferson Starship & Starship). "America's Favorite Cowboys" Riders in the Sky, Pigs on the Wing, Rose's Pawn Shop, Vagabond Opera, Louis Landon, and the return of Brewer and Shipley! Other returning artists are Melody Guy, Voice of Reason, & local bands Voodoo Highway, Wampus Cat, The Rum and the Sea. New bands are Patrimony, Cheyenne West & more. Three fun filled days were more than music. Local artisans and crafters offered some of the best all-natural handcrafted goods. We enjoyed great food vendors, & Sunriver Brewing micro-brews. Crater Lake Spirits distillery was hosting a 2nd stage! Fine wines were also served. The beautiful setting has open meadows and shady forest. Camping sites were complimentary with ticket.
This fundraiser event is for Oregon's Multiple Sclerosis Society. Many of us have friends afflicted with this debilitating disease. If you can't attend, we would very much appreciate a kind tax-deductible donation of any amount, through the website or checks to "Newberry Event". But you really don't want to miss this GREAT TIME for a GOOD CAUSE!
