Saturday, July 8th will usher in a new era in Jefferson Township as the 30 year old Jefferson Township Day event becomes the new Jefferson Fest – Food Truck Festival, Concert, and Fireworks celebration on the fields of the Jefferson Township High School at 1010 Weldon Road, Milton/Oak Ridge. 

Register for the 13th Annual Irish Road Bowling Contest

Saturday, July 8th not only will mark the date of the new and exciting Jefferson Fest – Food Truck Festival, Concert, and Fireworks event but also the date of the 13th annual Irish Road Bowling Contest.  Originally started by Jack Kelly, then President of the Jefferson Arts Committee, and taken over by Tom Hantson and most recently by George Damerel, this contest has grown into an exciting event associated with Jefferson’s annual township celebration. Last year, all the teams who competed had a fantastic time!

The Jefferson Arts Committee is excited to have DJ Earl Heller of Sound Solutions Entertainment get the celebration going starting at 5 pm.

DJ Earl, well known at so many functions in the Jefferson Township community, will begin the event playing a great variety of music and offering some fun activities for the children there.   A former Jefferson Township resident and a Jefferson Township High School graduate, DJ Earl is an accomplished bass guitarist, a member of 215 The Band, dee jays at the Mennen Arena for Friday Night Skates, is the Jefferson Township Teen Scene’s favorite DJ,  hosts dance parties at the Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp, and is the featured DJ at the annual Jefferson Township Fall Festival and Haunted House  events in October.  His outgoing personality draws in people of all ages to have a good time.

While DJ Earl is entertaining the crowd, food trucks will be opening up on site at 5:30 pm offering some delectable menus for your eating pleasure.  There’ll be Cheezen, Surf & Turf, Empanada Guys, Jersey Johnny’s, The French Quarter, Oink and Moo, and Maddalena’s Cheesecake!  So be sure to bring a chair or blanket and find a place on the field to be comfortable while you eat, listening to DJ Earl, and having fun with family and friends eagerly waiting for the concert and the fireworks to begin.

Bounce Around will be onsite with a 25’ climbing rock wall for everyone to enjoy (there will be a nominal fee to climb) from 5:30 to 9:30 pm.  Climbers will be fitted with a safety harness and attempt to climb to the very top – suitable for all age groups, no experience necessary except wanting to have a good time and try something new.

The British Invasion Years take the main stage on the field at 7:15 pm for a two-hour live concert, and this dynamic band will take you on a musical journey through the sixties and the iconic British band era, then the American musical response of memorable hits by celebrated artists of that period, and conclude with an extraordinary note-for-note finale with music from the one and only four lads who started it all – The Beatles.  Check them out at https://www.britishinvasionyears.com

The Jefferson Arts Committee will be selling 50/50 raffle tickets for the drawing that will be held at 9:20 pm, and those food trucks will continue offering delicious food items and refreshments throughout the evening.

Then sit back and relax, raise your eyes to the sky for one of the most spectacular aerial fireworks displays you may ever see staged and choreographed by Interstate Fireworks, the same company that has been presenting their fantastic show in Jefferson Township for over two decades.

There’s free admission and free parking including handicapped parking throughout the event.  ABSOLUTELY NO alcohol, NO smoking, NO drugs, NO fireworks, NO bicycles, NO pets or animals of any kind, NO large coolers, NO backpacks, NO drones.  Bring a lawn chair/blanket for your comfort.
