CARNIVAL RIDES

Town of Marana staff works hard to create events that are as accessible to the public as possible while maintaining costs and ensuring affordable opportunities. This year there will be a one-dollar charge per carnival attraction to help manage foot traffic and reduce any safety risks due to over-crowding. We hope you have a fun and safe evening this Saturday at Marana Farm Festival!

LIVE MUSIC

After dinner the sun starts to go down and the stage opens up for music and dancing. All ages are welcome in the beer garden (must be 21+ to purchase alcohol) to enjoy the festivities. Come back soon for more details about our artists.

6:00 P.M. - 6:30 P.M.
MCMT Community Choir

This choir consists of residents from around Marana ages 13 and up. It's a free choir that hopes to bring the arts to the community in a tangible and fun way. They will be performing several pieces to kick start our live music

 

6:45P.M. - 7:15 P.M.
Chris Graeber

Nashville influenced singer and songwriter Chris Graeber comes by his music naturally, growing up in the rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains in a town called Fayetteville, Arkansas. Chris has brought his music, planted roots and now calls Tucson, Arizona his home.  Chris' soothing voice wins over a crowd immediately, with tones similar to Billy Currington, and Thomas Rhett, but really keeps the crowds attention when he explodes into song with rich intense vocals similar to Luke Combs and Justin Moore.

7:30P.M. - 9:00 P.M.
Drew Cooper

I've always been a performer, acting, singing, just being an all around attention hog! The more I do it, the more I love it. So far the most exciting musical experience I've had came when I wrote "Pictures on The Wall". I wrote and recorded that song on a Wednesday, posted it online, and on Thursday at a gig I had a stranger come up and request that song! What an amazing feeling. My goal is to have that feeling and effect people that instantly and deeply everyday for the rest of my life. I am blessed to be doing what I love and to be able to share it with you. 
Thank you my Friends....Cooper
