‘Rock for Rescues’ leaves Milton for Woodstock

The Rock for Rescues Festival, the annual musical event to benefit metro Atlanta animal rescue organizations, is moving from Milton to Woodstock, the city of Milton announced.

The festival will take place 3 to 10 p.m. Saturday, April 25, as originally planned, but at the Northside Hospital Cherokee Amphitheater in downtown Woodstock rather than the Crabapple area of Milton, its venue for the last two years. For festival information:

“The evolving nature of the Rock for Rescues Festival made a different venue more suitable for this year … so the concert will not return to Milton this spring,” according to the city’s announcement.

The 2020 Rock for Rescues will benefit the AWARE Wildlife Center, Canine Cellmates, Furkids, Special Equestrians of Georgia, and the Georgia House Rabbits Society. Ray Baker, head of Vox Artium Foundation, the event’s organizer, said the group will continue working with Milton staff and residents “to raise awareness, hold events and make a difference.”
