Woofstock: It’s Worth Howling About!

There is no better way to have a good time with your four legged friend and help a worthy cause, The Forsyth Humane Society, than attending the 2nd Annual Woofstock Music Event on Saturday, May 15th. With great bands, family friendly events and special canine cahoots, Woofstock will be the highlight of every dog's Spring.

"The whole thought behind Woofstock is to offer families and their dogs a great day with fun activities. Woofstock is an extra special day with proceeds benefitting The Forsyth Humane Society. We are very fortunate to have an animal shelter in our city that is a no-kill facility, but in order to maintain the services we provide to the community, like spay/neuter and rabies clinics, to the everyday expenses of taking care of our dogs and cats, funds are needed," said Stephanie Belcher, President of Forsyth Humane Society Board."

The 2nd Annual Woofstock organizers hope to appeal to dog and animal lovers throughout the Triad. "In the past, The Forsyth Humane Society has planned two events with Art Unleashed and Woofstock, but this year the venue will be bigger with more events and activities for our 2 legged and 4 legged guests. A cross section of music, from blues, rock, acoustic, neo-soul will be part of the music line up. Food, wine and beer will be available. Like in the past, The Art Unleashed 'dog and cat statues' will be on display for the first time and at the end of the day, the 'art' will be moved to its foster homes and be on public display for the summer," commented Belcher.

Here's a list of all the great bands that are scheduled to appear with the approximate times they'll be taking the stage:

1:00 - Warren Bodle & Allen
1:30 - Lee and Susan Terry
2:30 - Sonya E. Henderson Band
3:30 - Big Ron Hunter
4:15 - Tyler Nail joining Big Ron
5:00 - Laurin Stroud Band
6:00 - Summers Bohenstiel
7:00 - 44 Love
8:00 - Donnaha Station
9:00 - The Berkstar Band
9:45 - The Grande Finale Jam Session

So for a good time and to make a dog's day, literally, bring your pooch and come to the Tanglewood Park Amphitheatre area on Saturday, May 15th.
