1994 Riverbank Festival

Riverbank Festival Crowd from the Damonmill tower - September 1994

For at least 5 out of the seven years of WADN’s existence as a folk music/community station, it produced and sponsored an annual outdoor festival each September in the parking lot outside its Damonmill Square studios. The “Riverbank Festival,” as it was called, featured performaces from artists whose music the station played, and was a significant source of income from sponsors through the sale of booth space and an accompanying spot advertising package.  The 1994 festival pictured above offered terrific weather and an excellent turnout, but  thanks to a couple of "misjudgements," revenues were significantly less than expected.
