This family-friendly (pets included!), camping, jam-oriented music and arts festival is a benefit for the Humane Society of Berks County (HSBC) in memory of my brother, Bobby Jones.  He loved all animals and was an avid supporter of the HSBC, as well as the Animal Rescue League.  In honor of Bobby, all proceeds donated to this annual festival go directly to the HSBC.

The rural setting of the Kempton Music Center is exactly what music fans look for in a jamband-like festival atmosphere.  The main stage area features a covered pavilion and an indoor venue will hold our late night sets throughout the weekend.  There are plenty of nearby spaces available to choose your ideal camping spot on the 60-acre premises.

In addition to an exciting and well-rounded collection of quality bands, there are plenty of activities and events planned for kids and adults alike, with a total feeling of brotherly/sisterly camaraderie and a complete family vibe.  A food drive by Strangers Helping Strangers will also be held to benefit the Opportunity House.  This festival guarantees to be a feast for the senses.
