42 North Brewing Company and Swain Resort are joining forces and have announced the first ever Basecamp Festival to be held on Saturday, July 9 at the base of the resort in Swain. The inaugural event will feature live music, craft beverages as well as outdoor activities. Patrons will have the opportunity to go on chair lift rides, hikes and will also feature a wide array of local artisan vendors.
The music kicks off with the Buffalo-based Organ Fairchild, a former NYS Music “March Madness” winner. Following them is the roots quartet Folkfaces who will bring their up-tempo mix of original and traditional music to the stage. The band recently wrapped up an East Coast tour and has played festivals throughout the country.
And the beer will be provided by 42 North Brewing from East Aurora, NY. “We are thrilled to partner with 42 North to create this event. We both share the same passion for great music, great beer, and outdoor adventure”, states Suzy Male, Director of Marketing for Swain. Male added that they hope to make Basecamp Festival an annual summer event at the resort.
A limited number of early bird tickets go on sale for $25 beginning Wednesday, April 6. For an additional fee, camping and overnight RV parking will be available. For more information on Basecamp or to purchase tickets, go to the event website here.
