Dublin Music Festival Benefit For Ukraine

Saturday, July 16, noon to 7pm

The Dublin Community Center and the Monadnock Folklore Society are co-sponsoring the Dublin Music Festival Benefit for Ukraine on Saturday, July 16, from noon to 7pm. The festival will be held in the Garden Sanctuary behind Dublin Community Church (1125 Main Street, Dublin). In the event of rain the festival will move into the church, with face masks required. Admission is by donation with proceeds benefitting World Central Kitchen which has been providing meals and assistance to those affected by the war in Ukraine.

This event will feature the DubHub BBQ grilling burgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers from noon to 2pm. (This will be our “community lunch” for July.) The Friends of the Dublin Public Library will be serving ice cream for dessert. Children’s activities are planned from noon to 2pm. Guests are advised to park at Yankee Publishing or behind Town Hall. They should bring lawn chairs, picnic suppers and beverages.

All performers are donating their services for this good cause. Sound will be provided by Peter Martel of the Monadnock Folklore Society.
