(Sunriver, Ore.) — Sunriver Resort is pleased to announce the annual Rhythm on the Range Music Celebration will take place July 6-7, 2012. This family-friendly charity concert celebration will be held adjacent to Sunriver Resort’s Main Lodge on the Meadows Golf Course driving range, backed by the spectacular Cascade Mountains.
Held annually over the Fourth of July weekend, this two-day festival features performances by high-energy cover band The Hit Machine on Friday, July 6 and Beatles tribute band ABBEY ROAD LIVE! on Saturday, July 7. Doors open at 5 pm; music begins at 6:30 pm.
Rhythm on the Range also includes local food vendors, a full bar, children’s activities, arts and crafts vendors and much more. As always, the event is dog-friendly -- pets on leashes are welcome. Admission is $5 per day, to be paid at the gate (free admission for children age 12 and under). Sunriver Resort guests enjoy complimentary admission.
Proceeds benefit local non-profit Wonderland Express, who, in partnership with the Family Access Network, provides a special annual holiday celebration for needy families.
Rhythm on the Range is made possible with the support of presenting sponsors Widmer Brothers Brewing and Club Car.
