Even if you aren’t running, you can certainly party in Canal Park during Grandmas Marathon weekend. You’ll see yours truly, Cathy Kates and Chris Allen hosting the entertainment tent during the weekend, so make sure you come over and say hello.
It all kicks off Friday night June 21 with a new start time. Music will start at 7 p.m. – an hour earlier than in past years – in part to accommodate those participating in the William A. Irvin 5K, which begins at 6 p.m. Another change is the elimination of the Friday night cover charge, which was $5 a year ago.
“We are very excited with the changes we have implemented, especially for Friday night. The earlier start time combined with six free hours of music from four tremendously talented bands is a recipe for a great time on marathon eve,” says Scott Keenan, executive director of Grandma’s Marathon. “The party atmosphere in the Big Top Tent is always a popular part of the entire Grandma’s weekend.”
Among the performers set to entertain during next weekend’s festivities are Big Wave Dave & The Ripples, Rogue Valley, Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles, Sarah Krueger, Mynx and Rhino.
Longtime marathon tradition GB Leighton, a 2011 Grandma’s Marathon Hall of Fame inductee, headlines the Saturday afternoon and evening schedules. GB Leighton is making appearance number 17 at Grandma’s Marathon, having made their debut in 1996.
A daytime lineup Saturday features a free show open to the public and begins at 11:30 a.m. The Friday and Saturday evening shows are for those 21 years of age and older.
