Get ready to jump around and chill out with music and a cool treat…

It’s time to get in one last celebration as we say farewell to this year’s SummerQuest! Join us for an ice-cream social featuring personalized, delicious ice-cream concoctions and two final out-of-this-world performances to wrap up another amazing SummerQuest. Enjoy a dynamic musical performance by the Juggernaut Jug Band, featuring an innovative blend of jazz, blues, and ragtime performed with unusual instruments like washboards, washtubs, kazoos, jugs, and other unexpected hardware. Then prepare for an action-packed, interactive show with the Rope Warrior as he demonstrates heart-pounding jump rope feats. Plus, we’ll have the Program Participation Prize drawings you’ve been waiting for all summer!

Main Stage Schedule:

1:00 PM | Juggernaut Jug Band
What do you get when you blend jazz, blues, and ragtime with washboards, washtubs, kazoos, jugs, and various other sundry hardware? Nothing less than a strange concoction called the Juggernaut Jug Band@ Based out of Louisville, Kentucky, the Juggernauts have proudly kept early twentieth-century jug music alive and well since 1965, when four high school lads discovered jug band music made them feel just fine! The Juggernaut Jug Band has had an impressive roster of musicians joining Roscoe Goose since their inception in 1965. Over the years, they have appeared with Leon Russell, Arlo Guthrie, John Hartford, Jonathan Edwards, Riders In the Sky, Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Tom Paxton, to drop a few names.
1:50 PM | Program Participation Prize Drawing
It’s time to award our SummerQuest program participation prizes in our annual drawing! (Please note, you do not need to be present to win.)
2:00 PM | Rope Warrior
Get ready to jump around! Be wowed by the amazing rope tricks—featuring a 10-foot jump rope, a choreographed routine to the tune of “Cotton-Eyed Joe,” jump-rope gymnastics, and an improv session guided by audience suggestions. Plus, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to participate, from group Double Dutch to awesome traveling tricks.The Rope Warrior has been featured on America’s Got Talent, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Good Morning America, Today, Guinness World Records Primetime, and several events nationwide.

Psst… We have not one but TWO SummerQuest finales this year! The ice-cream social finale at our Hillview location—featuring performances by the Juggernaut Jug Band and the Rope Warrior—is designed especially for older kids, teens, and adults while our carnival-themed was designed with our youngest SummerQuesters in mind. But both events promise to be fun for the whole family!

For all ages. Just drop in!
Space will be available on a first-come, first served basis. Questions? E-mail Jennifer Nippert at jnippert@bcplib.org.
