Rugby’s first Spring Festival, 1974, with Ted McNabb & George Ann Egerton
40 Years Ago this month,
Rugby’s first Spring Festival
To some of us, it seems like just a bit ago. Metal folding chairs under the shading oaks behind the historic Rugby home called Roslyn. Folksy harmonies drifting off the wide back porch, echoing into the ravine. Friends and neighbors tapping toes, carefree and sure Rugby was heading into a great era as it approached the 1980 centennial year. Rugby’s still here, and so is Spring Festival. Come join us!
SALUTING OUR FESITVAL CRAFT VENDORS
