What started in a North Stamford backyard five years ago as a local fundraiser to benefit an organization that helps parents in potential child abuse situations has now become an event that gives back even more to the community.

"Battle of the Bart" is back again this year with six bands to provide support to both St. Joseph's Parenting Center and Bartlett Arboretum. Organizer, Ruedi Millisits from Stamford, CT, has put together an amazing day of wonderful music. Musicians who range in age from 15 to 70 will perform on Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 1:00pm into the evening. Performing are New Canaan School of Rock Band, Willfull Misconduct, The Deep, Retro Express, Subourbons and Radon Love.

Bring your lawn chair, some food and favorite drink and get ready for a great summer afternoon. $20 for adults and $10 for children and members. 151 Brookdale Road, Stamford, CT. For more info click here. It's a great way to give back to your community while enjoying an incredible day of music.
