Resolana 2nd Annual Westside Music Festival – A Celebration of Community

13 Sep

September 24th marks the 2nd annual Westside Music Festival sponsored by Resolana. It is an afternoon festival that celebrates Resolana’s efforts to enable women to share most fully and productively with our greater community. Resolana is a community-based nonprofit that works with women in the Dallas County Jail to help educate and empower those incarcerated. With Resolana’s unique learning community that takes place behind jail walls, women can spend time in custody productively building a foundation for change as they prepare for their return to society.

Westside Music Festival is only one day – September 24th! It will start at noon and end at 6:00pm. Tickets to the 2nd Annual Westside Music Festival are $10 per person ($15 at the door), and $25 for a family pass ($30 at the door). The theme for this year’s festival is “A Celebration of Community”.

Both yoga sessions and chair massages will be provided that day. All the proceeds from Malorie Tolles’ seated chair massages will go towards Resolana. The same certified yoga instructors that visit the ladies in jail will go over the practices that they teach inside the jail.

All the food for the 2011 Westside Music Festival will be provided by Gandolfo’s NY Deli Food Truck!! Enjoy cool drinks and a variety of deli-style sandwiches fresh, made to order!

As far as the MUSIC goes…. Westside has a lot in store! Click here for a complete list of the performing artists!

Feel free to participate in the silent auction and bid on some award-winning items! From paintings, to gift certificates, artwork and crafts the money from the auction will also help benefit Resolana and their efforts to support incarcerated women move towards a positive and productive future. The 2nd Annual Westside Music Festival is definitely kid-friendly as there will be events catered specifically for children.
