Some 80+ party guests are expected to be on hand to preview some of the fantastic music planned for this festival and from festivals past.  Ed Donnelly and Jeanie Joe will be honored with the Creative Community Award, given to those who have made significant contributions to art, music and culture in South Pasadena.

Party-goers will enjoy not only the music, but also Mamma’s popular New York-style pasta fare while bidding on an eclectic array of silent and live auction items – all to benefit the Eclectic Music Festival and Arts Crawl event.

The party is presented by the Eclectic Friends of the Arts and the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce.  For more information about the festival and/or to make a donation to keep the music free, visit TheEclectic.Rocks online.
