MuscaPalooza music and art festival Friday and Saturday at Riverview Center

MuscaPalooza is here!

The two-day music and art festival at the Riverview Center is bound to stir your soul, with a variety of regional artists and new performers.

There will be something for everyone to enjoy: rock, blues, electronic, grunge, alternative, pop, indie, techno, dubstep, hip-hop, rap and great covers too.

Much like music, art has an important place in our community. Combining both art and music together, the festival bridges two creative styles as one. Guests will be able to enjoy the incredible aesthetic and inspiring beauty displayed around the venue.

Artists this year include Ben LaFayette, Chris Anderson, Laurie Burk, Sami Pratt, Lyndsay Thomas, Silverwynd Mixed Media, Chastity Gypsysoul and Jim Elias (Sunrise Galleries).

There will be live art demonstrations as well as a wide array of unique artwork items for sale.

And don’t forget the food!

MuscaPalooza will include QuickE’s Gourmet Tacos and Sno Cups both days and Rick’s Ribs on Saturday. This is a BYOB event, beer or wine in designated areas and no hard liquor allowed. An indoor lounge and beer garden will also be available.

Daily admission is $10, two-day tickets $15. Students under 21 get in for $5.
