In case you hadn't heard... Musikfest starts tonight.

Musikfest... for some, like me, it's the most wonderful time of the year. I clear my schedule a year in advance.

Tonight I'm going to see the very talented Dina Hall and a band I've heard a lot about, Three Legged Fox, both conveniently scheduled at Liederplatz (that's the one in the Sun Inn courtyard).

I have been checking out the blogroll of Musikfest enthusiasts:
Laini's List
Jana at Lehigh Valley Style
George at Lehigh Valley w/ Love
and of course, the official word from Jon and the gang at ArtsQuest

I will be hanging out in the SteelStacks booth for a bit this week, asking questions (as always!) and spreading the love, as usual. We'll be set up between the Playstation truck and the Bethlehem Dairy Store tent, near the Festplatz tent. Stop by to get your picture taken in front of the "blast furnace," find out more about SteelStacks, share your thoughts by taking a survey, and making a charitable gift, if you are so inclined.

What's SteelStacks? In one location on the South Side of Bethlehem, you will experience:

  • Over 300 live performances a year

  • 26 children’s concerts

  • 50 free, family-friendly outdoor concerts
