On behalf of the Town of Avon and SnowBall, LLC we wanted to touch base with you in advance of the second annual SnowBall Music Festival to let you know we will be alerting the community over the coming weeks with information on road closures, Avon Recreation Center reduced hours, and other impacts that will be associated with this premier music festival.
The SnowBall Music Festival, March 2 through March 4, will be occupying the main field in Harry A. Nottingham Park as well as surrounding buildings, parking lots and recreational paths. When details of the traffic management plan, venue map, transportation and parking plans are finalized they will be available on the Town’s web site www.avon.org/snowball. The 2012 SnowBall Music Festival has exceeded the year-to-date 2011 tickets sales, and we are expecting crowds in excess of 10,000 per day for the entire event weekend.
While we recognize this event will disrupt our daily routines for a short time, the overall economic impact for the region promises to be significant and long lasting. As a result, the organizing team is committed to working with everyone involved to make this event the best it can be. The committee has a common goal of keeping the festivalgoers and the community at large safe. Emergency action plans addressing, crowd control, snow removal and other safety components are being developed.
SnowBall LLC, has set up an e-mail address, SnowBallAvonResidents@gmail.com, specifically for the residents of Avon and business community to direct any areas of concern not covered in the final plans. Additional event information is available by visiting www.snowballmusicfestival.com.
We look forward to working with the entire community to facilitate this large-scale event in a way that speaks to the Town mission statement: “Enhancing Avon’s sense of community, providing a positive economic impact and marketing Avon as a desirable place to live, work and play.”
