Sizzle & Sounds

In 2010, we had the idea of a summertime, family friendly festival that would embrace music and food and celebrate our local musical talent as well as invite in well-known bands. The idea was presented to the Sunbury Parks & Recreation Committee. Upon unanimous support, the idea was then presented to the Village Council and received overwhelming positive response. Our first Festival took place on August 27th, 2010 from 11:00am to 11:00pm. In 2013 the Big Walnut Civic Association was created to maintain the momentum of Sunbury Sizzle & Sounds as well as add new and exciting community activities. Sunbury Sizzle & Sounds is an end of summer celebration featuring all day musical entertainment. With a growing attendance each year, we are now seeing up to 15,000 people throughout the day. We have featured bands such as McGuffey Lane, The Regonomics, Nashville Crush, Shucking Bubba Deluxe and LDNL. This exciting day will include a variety of quality food vendors, locally crafted items/art, and an AMAZING kid's area with some awesome activities and an evening beer garden for our Music/Grill loving friends 21 and over.
