Real Good for FREE: Berne Summerfest on Saturday


The second annual Berne Summerfest takes over the Berne Town Park on Saturday (August 23) with a day full of family activities and entertainment. And it’s all free.

There’s something for everyone from face painting to a car show, from a homer run derby to a puppet show. There will be demonstrations of such crafts as barn quilt making, blacksmithing, spinning and weaving. And there are contests, too – a pie contest (1:30pm), a zucchini competition (3pm) and a beard and mustache contest (4pm).

And, of course, there will be lots of live music, too. Here’s the schedule of entertainment at the Main Stage:

12noon: “Berne’s Got Talent” Open Mic
12:30pm: “Deitz Massacre One Man Show” by Ralph Miller, Town of Berne Historian
1pm: Just a Bunch of Guys
2:30pm: Bluestones
4pm: Shine Hill Road
5:30pm: Red Haired Strangers
7pm: Hilltown Ramblers
8:30pm: fireworks
9pm: Open Jam Session (all musicians invited)
