Metro Wire Staff

Jam’n’July Music Fest returns to Pfiffner Pioneer Park next month for a day-long rock show.

The fifth annual event will be held 12:30-10 p.m. on Saturday, July 31.

Organizer Ben Kollock said he’s arranged for “10 of the best rock, alternative, emo, punk, and metal bands from the Midwest” to perform throughout the day.

A variety of food trucks will be onsite, and local craft beer from O’so Brewing and Central Waters will be available for purchase.

This year’s headliner is ’68, a punk duo from Georgia popular for energetic performances.

“Music is a way of life, and live music is something we’ve all been desperately missing during the pandemic,” Kollock said. “Every band in history started within the local music scene and grew from there. Stevens Point and the surrounding areas have extremely talented musicians, and this event is an opportunity for them to perform their instruments for anyone who wants to listen and for everyone to have fun in the process. Creativity should be celebrated, and Jam’n’July is the celebration of artists coming together to perform in Stevens Point.”

Admission is free for children 15 and younger. For attendees 16 and older, admission is $15, $30 for admission plus a drink-all-day wristband (21+), or $40 for admission, a drink-all-day wristband (21+), and a Jam’n’July 2021 t-shirt.

Kollock launched the first Jam’n’July Music Fest in 2015. For more information follow the event on Facebook.
