Peace & Love Harvest Fest, Sept. 26


The Lake Claire Community Land Trust presents
Saturday, Sept. 26, 2:00 – 11:00 pm
Adults – $10 donation, teens – $1, kids under 12 – free

Greetings neighbors and friends! The time is almost here for the Peace & Love Harvest Fest, our bi-annual fundraiser for the Lake Claire Community Land Trust. It’s happening on Saturday, Sept. 26 (note new date). We are excited to bring you a full day of music, art, food, friendship, community and FUN! We will be dancing and playing from 2:00-11:00 pm, so come on out and be part of your neighborhood and help raise money to maintain our beautiful oasis in the city.

The musical line-up is not yet complete, but as always it begins with our teen bands, who have been playing for us now from their junior high days and now into high school. They have grown not only physically, but artistically and musically and we are so proud of them.

Fuiste – This teenage trio just released their debut EP with their high-energy blend of progressive & experimental rock/jazz originals. Its members are now Grady High seniors. (Other teen bands are still tentative.)

My Imaginary Band – A crockpot of Alternative Rock. Imagine if you got out your musical blender and mixed together Cake, The Decemberists, Flogging Molly, Old97s, Radiohead, White Stripes, and the Jam. Put all that together and you get this cool but quirky band playing songs you know by heart and many you never ever knew existed. Its members are parents of some of our teen performers at past festivals.

She She R – This brand new all-female band emerged out of Ladies Rock Camp of Atlanta. They are making their DEBUT appearance, covering music from the band CCR (Credence Clearwater Revival). They are practicing hard and are very excited to be a part of our musical lineup.

Swami Gone Bananas – Atlanta native, artist, and musician Mike “Swami” Schulman was a radio personality in the early ‘90s. He called himself “Swami Gone Bananas” then, and the name was born. A fine artist in the ‘60s style, he began working for the Grateful Dead in 1992. Swami always said that the Dead were the best cover band ever, so after Jerry Garcia died, he put together a band to ‘cover’ them. The band has gone full circle since then, writing their own songs, becoming one of the South’s fine nightclub acts, and playing festivals all over the Southeast.

You’ll also be treated to a hula dance performance by the Aloha Kitties, and some powerful drumming by the Sensua Players. We are so lucky to have all these talented and amazing musicians and performers to be part of our cause!

Besides the music, we’ll have food and drinks, an Artists’ Market, a Bake Sale, face painting, and a raffle with lots of cool prizes. If you bring your own re-usable plate and utensils, you will receive $1.00 off on your meal. Bakers, we would love your donation of deliciousness for our Bake Sale table! Please include all ingredients on a small card. And please, everyone, use the marked recycling containers.

This event is held in the Lake Claire neighborhood, so we ask that you treat nearby neighbors with respect. Walk, bike, carpool, or take MARTA if you can. If you drive, please do not park on side streets. Event parking is available at Clifton Sanctuary, 369 Connecticut Ave., a short walk away. Walk quietly to and from your car. Please leave your critters at home.

Your donation helps to maintain and beautify the Land Trust. Cash is preferred, but will take cards at the ticket booth. Food and drinks are cash only. There is a money machine close by at the Candler Park Market or over at the Edgewood Shopping Center.

We can’t wait to dance with all of you!  Please invite all your friends and family!
