Croakerfest 2018 is happening on the weekend of Friday June 29 thru Sunday July 1. Headlining music act this year – The Embers, of beach music fame. Check back for more details about Oriental’s biggest summer festival.
(A scheduling note: Croakerfest typically takes place on the weekend-with-the-first-Saturday-of-July. Some years that Saturday has been as far into the month as July 7, which would have been the case again this year. The 2018 Croakerfest was scheduled far a week earlier because, Croakerfest organizer Cheryl Thompson says, it was the weekend The Embers could play. Another factor was the festival coming after the 4th of July. )
