3rd Annual SwiftWaters Music Festival

The 3rd Annual SwiftWaters Music Festival is scheduled for Saturday, August 30 at Chop Point School in Woolwich. The line-up of national artists for this full day of music for the whole family is the best the festival has offered yet. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend this family event.

Erin O’Donnell returns to Maine, this time to play in front of the beautiful Kennebec River in Chop Point’s outdoor natural amphitheatre. Her 2001 release, which solidified her place as a female pop star in Christian music history, gave us such #1 as “Janie’s Garden”, “Hold On To Jesus” and the title track “No Place So Far.” Erin is currently working on a new album, which will debut in September. Join us to hear a sneak peak on that new album.
Big Daddy Weave comes to Maine for their first ever performance in New England! Meet Dove Award New Artist of the Year nominee, Big Daddy Weave…five guys borne out of the University of Mobile (AL) college circuit who have parlayed a love for fun, music and God into a full-time gig. Their unique sound keeps them from being just another run-of-the-mill new Christian band, combining a range of styles that have them often compared to mainstream favorite Dave Matthews Band or Christian pop mainstay Steven Curtis Chapman.
Additional acts include two local groups: Lisa Gallant Seal and the Praise Team from the Elim Community Church in Bath. The festival officially runs from 1pm until 6pm, but doors open at noon and music will be heard the entire afternoon.
Photographer Tom Jones will be available to take family photographs on beautiful Chopps Point, overlooking the river. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Chop Point School. Only the first 30 families will be accepted. For a reservation, contact Wendy Willard at 443-6839.
Two licensed massage therapists from Heritage Family Chiropractic will be on hand to give 15 minute chair massages. The cost is $10, of which $5 will be donated to Chop Point School.
Children’s activities include face stickers, a clown, balloons, carnival games, jump ropes, basketballs, tennis equipment, sidewalk chalk, a playground and more. A changing/resting station is also available for families with young children.
Ample free parking is available on the grounds.
The school dining hall will be open, serving Maine Lobster Rolls, chicken nuggets, french fries, hot dogs, soda, cotton candy, fruit cups, fried dough, ice cream and more. Bring a blanket and plan to have a picnic lunch with the whole family!
All tickets are general admission, lawn seating. Blankets are welcome; those with lawn chairs will be asked to sit toward the back, so as to not block anyone’s view of the stage. If the weather is bad, rain gear and umbrellas are advised. Doors open at 12noon at Chop Point School/Camp, 420 Chop Point Road, Woolwich, ME 04579. Tickets are $8/single; $5/group of 10 or more (available until Friday at 12noon); $10/door
