Cranmore Announces 2nd Annual “Rock the Rec” Concert
Cranmore Mountain Resort is excited to announce the second Rock the Rec event, an evening of music to support the Mount Washington Valley Rec Path, on Thursday, August 22 at the base of the North Slope.
Rock the Rec will feature live music by the local bands the Riley Parkhurst Project, Rek’-lis and Shark Martin. Tickets are $15 at the gate on the day of, or $12 online, in advance. Children 12 and under are free.
100% of the ticket proceeds will go to the Mount Washington Valley Trails Association to fund the North Conway Rec Path. The multi-use, 2.8-mile paved path will run between Cranmore Mountain and Hemlock Lane (by Wal-Mart). Groundbreaking is projected to take place in spring 2020. Last year, at the first event, Cranmore donated $8,000 from ticket sales and food and beverage sales.
“We are fortunate to live in such a supportive community that also shares our passion for outdoor recreation,” said Ben Wilcox, Cranmore President and GM, “The Rec Path is a welcome addition that will complement the existing activities and attractions in the Valley and we are happy to support this cause.”
New this year, food will be available from local food truck vendors, Kimberly’s Gluten-Free Kitchen, White Mountain Wood-Fired Pizza, Cheese Louise and Trails End Ice Cream. Beverages will be available for purchase from Centerplate at Cranmore Mountain Resort on Zip’s Pub deck. Guests are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket for seating on the lawn. Rock the Rec will take place rain or shine.
