SCHENECTADY — Nippertown is hosting the area’s first-of-its-kind all-day music festival featuring local musicians from across the Capital Region.
Free of charge and family-friendly, NipperFest will rock the stage in Schenectady’s Central Park 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 23.
The local online publication, Nippertown.com, is the result of tireless efforts by a cadre of music-loving volunteers whose aim is to promote the local music and arts scene. With its mission to support local music, hosting NipperFest seemed to be a logical project for the award-winning website.
The All-Star line-up for the inaugural NipperFest honors music from the Troy, Saratoga, and Schenectady areas and features 15 bands and acoustic artists totaling 11 hours of music.
The festival also will play host to a slew of food trucks, so staying for the entire day is not only possible but likely a treat for your taste buds as well. Schenectady’s Central Park has playgrounds, a free pool (with lifeguards), disc golf, and a lot of space to spread out blankets to enjoy live music with your family, friends, and even your dogs.
The 15 bands will cover two stages and lineup includes The Figgs, Sawyer Frederick, Erin Harkes Band, Super 400, Sirsy, and Girl Blue.
