“Freeholder Leonard is a fan of mine and my music,” says Randolph. “So when he started talking to me about doing a free show for the people of Camden County, I just loved the idea. We had meetings with County officials, and they were real excited to make this a County project. For me, as a New Jersey resident, born and raised and with so much family and friends in South Jersey and Philly, this is a great opportunity for me to give something back to the state, and have a great show on a holiday weekend.”
“With the economy the way it is,” Leonbard says, “I think this show is a great opportunity for families to have a fun time for free that includes amazing music and most importantly, to access some great health and wellness resources.”
The main theme of the BBQ (aside from fun!) is health and wellness. As such, a number of booths from regional Health & Wellness Organizations will be lining the walkways around the festival with an abundance of information. Make sure you visit them!
Hope to see you there!!
