Village Vibes Music Festival Comes to Vinton Saturday

The Village of Vinton, in collaboration with Keep Vinton Beautiful and other great community partners, is proudly hosting the inaugural Village Vibes Music Festival on Saturday, October 08, 2016 from 12 PM to 12 AM at Dr. Applegate Park located at 7966 Quejette Road.

“After months of planning, I am proud to finally be able to present Village Vibes Music Festival to Vinton, El Paso and all our surrounding communities. KVB was looking for resourceful and fun ways to raise money for our community garden and learning center and this was a great opportunity. I would like to thank the Village of Vinton and all of our sponsors for making it possible,” states Mike Ramirez, Keep Vinton Beautiful Chair.

The Village Vibes Music Festival hopes to attract approximately 4,000 guests, of all ages, for a day filled with live music, food trucks and vendors. Village Vibes is an event that will bring together Vinton Residents and the surrounding Paso Del Norte communities for an experience that fuses music, culture and community outreach.

Town officials say that the Village Vibes Music Festival aims to build public awareness of the importance of establishing a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

“As the Mayor of the Village of Vinton, I am elated to be a part of Village Vibes because it brings recognition to our city and more importantly, at its heart, it is an event that further improves Vinton and promotes the culture identity of our residents” states Mayor Madeleine Praino.

Village Vibes is a fundraiser for Vinton’s first community garden and learning center that will sit on 4 acres of land located at Dr. Applegate’s property, the heart of Vinton.

The Village of Vinton’s Community Garden and Learning Center will address the lack of access to fresh, locally sourced produce and provide economic development for local farmers and an educational resource for local residents and elementary students.
