Xenia Community Festival 2014 Returns to Shawnee Park
The Xenia Community Festival Committee is proud to announce a new--but old--location for the Xenia Community Festival this September 19 and 20--Shawnee Park.
The Festival will retain its Title Sponsor, Greene Memorial Hospital, and will feature Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers as the headline entertainment on Saturday night, September 20. The Balloon Glow is being planned for Friday night. Other enhancements for the 2014 Festival are currently in the planning stages.
The Festival will need to leave its previous location due to construction of the new City Hall in downtown Xenia. "The Committee felt moving the Festival now would be the best strategy," said Diane Hollenbeck, President of the Committee. "We're happy to see the City improving and we think the move will be great for the Festival and the community."
"It's good to see this group think out of the box, not give up, and be proactive--to keep the Festival going in Xenia." said Alan Liming, President and CEO of the Xenia Area Chamber of Commerce.
