Weekend Music At The Daffodil Festival

The weather is getting warmer, the grass is growing and the flowers are blooming, which means it's time for the 32nd annual Meriden Daffodil Festival. Each year the city of Meriden puts on a great festival at one of the area's landmarks, Hubbard Park. It's a weekend filled with crafts, food, fun and of course, MUSIC.

The weekend will be filled with over 30 bands performing on three different stages over the course of two days. Many bands are returning guests at the festival with a few new bands invited to keep the music scene growing. See the full schedule of bands performing below.

Also, tune in to Homegrown (WESU - 88.1 FM) this week as Rob DeRosa will be playing songs from many of this weekend's performers. Go to for a live webcast of the show. For full coverage of the weekend's events, please visit and Go out and support your local music.

It's been a while since I last visited my hometown, Meriden. I surely missed all the food and the non-stop music at the annual festival. I noticed that ever since I started my own family and moved to Denver, summer concerts have gotten more exciting and fun. That's why, whenever we have time, my family and I would attend the electrifying summer concerts in Denver.

This definitely brings back fun childhood memories. Thanks for posting!
