Rock and Blues Benefit Festival to Help Save the Bolton Fair & Fairgrounds -- Sat. 10/13

This is a fundraiser to save the Bolton Fair and Fairgrounds. In 2012, the Bolton Fair had a very poor turnout because of three days of rain, this created deep financial trouble. If the Bolton Fair doesn't make enough money this year to pay their bills, their fifty-three acres of land will be sold to housing developers and the fair will close for good. The Bolton Fair was established in 1874. Since the beginning, the Bolton Fair has been run entirely by a volunteer staff. Support local music and help save the Bolton Fair this Saturday, October 13.
