Bedford’s first Summer Solstice Festival is a free, family-friendly event featuring a German-style biergarten by Notch Brewery, food trucks, lawn games, and music. Relax and enjoy the beautiful and historic setting of the Town Common.

Six food trucks will be serving everything from dumplings to barbecue, including Moyzilla, The Cod Squad, The Whoo(pie) Wagon, Chez Rafiki, Papi’s Stuffed Sopapillas, and Uncle E’s BBQ Express. From 1 pm to 3 pm, enjoy music from local singer, Rick Skehan, featuring hits from the Rat Pack through the 90s.
