Since Taste of Northfield has turned out to be a huge hit for downtown, LoGroNo co-host Ross Currier, with his NDDC hat on, must figure he’s got the magic touch.
He’s throwing the entire weight of the NDDC (see his blog post here) behind Northfield’s First Annual JuneBug Festival of Music in hopes that it becomes another signature event for downtown Northfield.
This first year, Norman Butler and Julie Bixby at the Contented Cow have
bellied up to the bar taken the lead to put it on. The website for the event is NorthfieldJuneBug.com to encourage other Northfield entertainment establishments to participate next year.
Hey, if Austin, Texas can have South By Southwest, why not something similar for Northfield?
Brothers Leigh and Charles Johnson (Built by Johnson) have constructed a mobile stage in the parking lot between the Cow’s riverfront patio and the Riverwalk. It was tested last Saturday and found to be more than acceptable.
The current music line-up for the three-day fest:
Thursday, June 26
- Marty Anderson and the Goods
Friday, June 27
Saturday, June 28
