On August 27 from 1:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, CFC Loud N Clear Foundation will host its third annual Rock the Farm Music and Food Truck Festival. “This year, we are holding the event at Brookdale because we have outgrown our family farm, the event’s original venue,” informs Lynn Regan, executive director and co-founder of CFC alongside her son, Daniel. “The event lineup has grown exponentially and so has the crowd!”
At Rock the Farm, people come together for food, music, fun, and socializing to celebrate life in support of CFC’s mission to rebuild lives, heal families, and support recovery. The premier event for people of all ages features live music from local musicians and rock and roll legends, with an eclectic blend of rock, folk, reggae, and country music. In addition, there are over 25 award-winning food trucks, an organic smoothie station, a kids’ zone with petting zoo, yoga, meditation, and fitness classes, craft vendors, a VIP-exclusive bungalow, and more. The event has something for everyone; whether you are a food lover, music enthusiast, or simply looking for a day of family fun, Rock The Farm has you covered.
CFC believes that music truly does heal the mind, body, and soul. Rock the Farm offers a diverse lineup, which is sure to resonate with everyone in attendance. The artists include iTunes sensation Trevor Hall, Chadwick Stokes of Dispatch and State Radio, as well as Artimus Pyle of Lynyrd Skynyrd and his band. Rock and roll legend and bassist of Alice Cooper group Dennis Dunaway, Matt O’Ree Band, Carmine Appice of Vanilla Fudge, Vini Lopez of the E-Street Band, David Bryan of Bon Jovi, Ries Brothers, and the Mike Martin Band will all be a part of the event. The great variety of genres, coupled with extraordinary talented artists, will make it a festival to remember.
CFC Loud N Clear Foundation, a Farmingdale-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization, promotes positive life choices by aiding drug recovery efforts and inspiring healthy, positive lifestyles through their comprehensive relapse prevention program. Proceeds from previous Rock the Farm events and other CFC fundraisers have placed over 2,000 people with addictions into treatment, established two sober living homes in the local community, hosted 300 meditation classes and 2,000 SMART recovery meetings, funded 2,000-plus sober social activities, and provided more than 300 life skills workshops to date. The full circle program provides many roads to recovery, without judgment of your choice, opinions, or identity. The open-mindedness of the program has led to nothing but success, yielding an unheard of 85% success rate.
