St. Meinrad Rocks Fest this weekend


Inkspot Productions, LLC presents the 12th St. Meinrad Rocks Fest on Friday and Saturday, September 22 and 23. The two-day benefit music event will be held at St. Meinrad Park and will again feature FREE Admission.

Donations will be accepted for anyone wishing to contribute to the cause, with all proceeds going toward a future town museum.

This year’s event will again feature a beer garden (sponsored by Louie’s Tavern), children’s activities, and country and rock music by a total of 13 acts on two stages, bands and solo acts, returning favorites and newcomers, as well as a live animal show, free facepainting and balloons! 

Food trucks will be present both days, and fest and performer merchandise will also be available.

A Vendor Fair will take place on Saturday, from 2-6, in the park area. “It Takes a Village” will also have an Adoption Blitz on Saturday, so come find a new furry friend!
