Festival Fever: Riverfront Rocktoberfest in Troy, 9/22/12

It looks like still more fall festivals are popping up on the Nippertown concert calendar…

The latest announcement comes from the folks at Albany.com, who are sponsoring Riverfront Rocktoberfest in Troy’s Riverfront Park on Saturday, September 22.

The outdoor fest is slated to run from 12noon-8:30pm – the same day and almost the exact same times that PearlPalooza will be going on across the river on North Pearl Street in Albany.

Troy’s Rocktoberfest is promising beer tastings of seasonal American craft beer and European specialty beer, as well as local vendors, delicious food and, of course, live music. Tix to the fest are $10.

Here’s the schedule for the bands performing at the inaugural Riverfront Rocktoberfest celebration:

12noon: Rich Ortiz
2pm: Conehead Buddha
4pm: Funk Evolution
6pm: Darik & the Funbags

Interestingly enough, it seems as though Conehead Buddha is scheduled to play at both festivals.
