Free Keene Fest is coming!
The Spring 2009 Free Keene Fest is coming soon! It will be held Saturday, May 23 - Memorial Day weekend - from Noon until 3:00p at Railroad Square in Keene (82 Main Street), and this year will be followed by a picnic/BBQ in a nearby park. Join us for an afternoon of liberty outreach and live music, and an evening of food and fun.
I realize this is not very much notice, but we wanted to have the festival before it got too hot, yet we wanted to wait until Keene’s trial for “assembly without a permit” was finished. (FYI: In February of this year, Keene cops charged me with “assembly without a permit” for organizing the Fall 2008 Keene Freedom Fest. As I showed up for their trial on May 1, the cop/prosecutor Eli Rivera told me they dropped their charges because the government says you need their permit if you claim exclusive use of Railroad Square but Eli said he could not prove we were using it exclusively. Because we weren’t! So that means that they likely won’t attack us for “assembly without a permit” again, but keep on your toes – they may attack us for other made-up reasons. )
We already have at least one band and a food vendor signed up. Here is a list of organizations that participated in the Fall 2008 festival:
- Fully Informed Jury Association
- NH Free Press
- Free Minds TV
- NH Liberty Alliance
- Anarchy In Your Head
- NH Common Sense
- Liberty Scholarship Fund
- Libertarian Party of New Hampshire
- Liberty Conspiracy
- Alternatives Expo
- Free Talk Live
- FreeKeene.com’s Bloggers
- State Nationals
- Rumors of War
- Josh Noone and the Federal Crime
Please post on our website forums if you represent one of these organizations and would like to participate again, or if you know any other organizations that would like to participate in pro-liberty outreach. Also, post if you can volunteer chairs, tables, gazebo-tents, or your time (for putting up and handing out flyers, etc.).
Visit our website for all the details and to volunteer and discuss the plans and make suggestions.
Thanks for your participation, and I look forward to another fun festival!Want to discuss rather than just commenting here? Visit the Shire Society Forum.
