This event takes place at multiple venues with a myriad of artists performing throughout the region.
Gettysburg Rocks is a music festival and fundraiser benefitting children with cancer.
In August, the event raised more than $20,000. Since the creation of Gettysburg Rocks, the event has raised more than $100,000 for Four Diamonds | Childhood Cancer Organization | FTK®
It is the brainchild of local musician, music promoter and radio personality Rob Simon (aka Bald Rob).
The original concept for this multiple venue festival in the town of Gettysburg was just an idea until Rob’s daughter Ashley approached him to help her with a fundraiser for Penn State Mont Alto’s THON group. The first event was held in February of 2014 and included 130 live bands across 12 venues in Gettysburg. During an 11-week period the first Gettysburg Rocks event was planned, created, implemented and was an immediate success.
After the success of the first event, Rob was approached by several of the participating venues to create a warm weather version of the popular festival and August was added to complement the February event
