June 23: Barry “The Fish” Melton and his Band
Don't freak out, man. It's free. Bell-bottoms and hippie threads encouraged. Time to pull out your tie-dye favorites!
Music begins at 6:30pm. Our 60's inspired "Hippie Market" along Plaza Way opens at 6pm.
Stay late to jam! Acoustic hootenanny around the campfire begins at 8:30, with special guests, including Lafayette's own Stevie Coyle (The Waybacks), playing folk songs. Bring your guitar!
Says Jay Lifson, Executive Director of the Lafayette Chamber and long-time DeadHead:
“Be there or be square! Dude, If you remember the 60's you probably weren't there. But you won't want to miss it this second time around!"
