Just when you think there’s nothing to do this summer, Farley Fest comes through for you! The 2020 Farley Fest tradition continues Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1 at Lake Farley Park in Milbank.
Judd Hoos, a rock band from the Black Hills, headlines the concert ticket at 9:30 p.m. and follows Bryan Loweree a solo acoustic guitarist who takes the stage at 8 p.m. Ticket prices are just $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
Judd Hoos is known for mixing genres — rock, Americana, and a little bit of pop. Featuring a melting pot of sounds, it’s not your typical rock concert. Check out their hit singles, Dirty Work, Breathe In, and We Were Young.
Loweree, formerly the frontman for the band 32 Below, sings and plays original country tunes. Andy Young, lead guitarist of Judd Hoos, says, “Bryan is the life of any party on or off the stage, but it’s his talent that sets him apart.”
That’s not all, though. According to Laurie Folk, director of the Milbank Area Chamber which sponsors the festival, there’s even more to Farley Fest than what’s on the stage:
1. Shop over 40 vendors in the park on Friday from 4-10 p.m. and Saturday from 10- 4 p.m. See and taste everything from art to BBQ. Visit with new vendors and your favorites from years past. Food vendors will remain open until the concert ends.
2. Listen to Neon Gypsy as they play a free concert in the park from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday.
3. Watch the parade travel down Main Street starting at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. Or enter your float or vehicle. Contact Laurie at the Chamber to register.
4. Sign up for the 2020 Cornhole Tournament. Registration is Friday at 5:30 p.m. and plays starts at 6 p.m. Entry is $20 per team and includes two free drink cards. Payout is 100 percent.
