Stroll on State Performances

Project First Rate

We are so excited to feature the tremendous talent of our local artists and a few others playing their favorite holiday music at this year’s Stroll on State. With many stages to choose from, you’ll have several opportunities to catch a band or two while taking in the sights and celebrating the season. Santa will be making a special appearance at each stage, along with special guests and live musical performances. Live music will begin at 3 pm and conclude at 9 pm.
