Chain Reaction Food and Music Festival
April 8, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Food and Music Festival is an annual event hosted by Chain Reaction, Gainesville’s very own March of Dimes high school leadership council. Twenty one students from five local high schools work together to recruit local bands to perform on Tioga’s stage, as well as food trucks and other refreshments for festival-goers to enjoy. Last year’s event featured Papa Pineapple’s, Monsta Lobsta, Soup To Nuts and Turnpike Mike’s, and raised over $3,000 for the March of Dimes mission – to end prematurity, birth defects and infant mortality.
There will be a suggested donation of $5 for entry, and throughout the night the audience can donate money to the box of the band they believe performed the best. The musical act with the highest amount of donations will win the “Ultimate Baby Saver” award. 20% of all food truck sales will also go back to the March of Dimes.
