Fredonia: Special celebration for the weekend

It is one of the traditional celebrations that area residents relish in the village of Fredonia: the Red, White and Blues. For 25 years, this event has kept downtown hopping in early September.

Plan on the same this year.

Sponsored this year by Fredonia Beaver Club and Three Chord Bourbon, the Festivals Fredonia event showcases the local wine industry — the “Red” and “White” in the name — and area musicians, the “Blues”.

Events are Friday and Saturday with musicians playing in Fredonia bars and restaurants. The food trucks, wineries and craft vendors will set up this year in the Water Street municipal parking lot, and not the usual spot in Barker Common, where there is a construction project ongoing. The main stage act, set for 3 p.m. Saturday, will feature Kara Grainger, a musician from Australia now living in Nashville. It will take place at the Water Street stage.

Music on Friday begins at 6 and 8 p.m., with a full schedule of music and venues Saturday from noon to past 10 p.m. Fittingly, the event will feature a theme that remembers of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
