Our festivals offer so much! This will be a day of family fun, good music and community fellowship. It doesn’t end there. While you are enjoying your day, you will be helping a number of charities who are partnering with us. Your participation to our Southern Rock & BBQ Festival will be adding to the lives of so many, less fortunate people.
THE MASONIC PARK & YOUTH CAMP: We are dedicated to donating a percent of our net proceeds to the Masonic Park & Youth Camp. This donation will assist the Park with maintenance and help add amenities for our young campers and the public to enjoy.
For more than 45 years, the Masonic Park has provided a safe and nurturing environment where travelers can relax. Within our park, campers learn about nature, and gain self-esteem, confidence and lasting friendships.
The park is situated on 204 acres of beautifully wooded land in Wimauma, Florida and includes amenities for all ages. You can enjoy our lake, canoes, kayaks, hiking trails, horseback riding, wildlife, basketball courts, and a paintball course. We have several activity buildings for your event planning, and plenty of space to relax and explore. more information about the Park, go to their website: http://masonicparkflorida.com/.
THE SHRINERS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF TAMPA: The Tampa Shriners Hospital focuses on a wide range of pediatric orthopedic conditions, including rare diseases and syndromes. When you visit Shriners Hospitals for Children — Tampa you might see your neighbors and might also meet families visiting from across Florida and south Georgia, as well as from other countries. All services are provided in a family-centered environment, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
Some of the Shrine’s Motorcycle Groups, will be hosting a Poker Run ending at the Festival. The Provost Guard, from the Shrine, will be assisting with parking at the Festival. We will be showing our gratitude for these volunteers by donating equal or a higher value of their time to the Hospital. Along with that, we will be holding an auction to add to that donation.
