Update as of Friday, April 8 - the event has been moved to the Williams Center Multipurpose Room.

After a two-year absence, the large-scale live music concert will return to campus on Saturday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

The “Commons” is back in Fredonia Radio Systems’ Rockin’ the Commons fundraiser for Roswell Park Cancer Center.

After a two-year absence, the large-scale live music concert will return to Barker Commons in the Village of Fredonia on Saturday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The rain location is the Williams Center Multipurpose Room.

“This is the first time we will be hosting the event since the start of the pandemic,” said Fredonia Radio Systems’ staff representative Alex Erwin. Ongoing street, curb and sidewalk reconstruction sidelined last year’s event. Rockin’ the Commons typically raises over $4,000 each year.

Live music from local bands such as The Burkharts, Beach Tower and Cheap Peach, along with food sales, music sales, activities put on by student groups and a variety of raffle baskets, will be featured. WDVL 89.5 and WCVF 88.9 will livestream the event.

All proceeds that Fredonia Radio Systems collects go straight to Roswell, Mr. Erwin said.
