Del’s Army Food Drive Enters Third Year at DelFest
When you’re packing for DelFest don’t forget to grab some non-perishable food items for the third annual Del’s Army Food Drive. Beginning in 2011, Del’s Army has collected over two and half tons of food at DelFest from their table at the entrance to the Music Meadow. They’ll be open at 2pm Thursday and 10am Friday through Sunday to receive food donations or contributions for the Western Maryland Food Bank. If you’re lucky they may still have some of their legendary limited edition PAA 1344 charity swag for sale. Please join them in doing good works through music at DelFest 2013.
Camp Traction consists of music fans who choose to experience festivals and shows without the use of drugs or alcohol. Our primary purpose is to provide a safe environment for clean & sober music fans. We are not affiliated with AA, NA, DelFest, or any other organized recovery group. We are simply a group of people who share the common bond of enjoying musical events in a clean & sober state. We take no position on drug and/or alcohol use and leave those decisions to the individual. We offer support, strength and hope to those who seek what we share. Our location at DelFest is noted on the festival map.
