headliner information

Mayor Carlo DeMaria is happy to announce that the City of Everett is partnering with Encore Boston Harbor, Craft Brewers Guild, and Suffolk Construction for the fourth Annual Village Fest, a citywide celebration that will take place from 3 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, September 15th. This will take place in the Village Business District along Santilli Highway.


Mayor DeMaria stated, “I want to personally thank our friends from Encore, the Craft Brewers Guild, and Suffolk Construction for their significant financial commitments to Village Fest this year. Without their donations we would not be able to bring in world-renowned band, Sugar Ray to our great City. This year’s show will be fantastic.”


The past three editions of Village Fest have been a great success, with huge turnouts from residents of Everett and several surrounding communities. This year, the City of Everett expects to welcome even greater numbers. Accordingly, the festival will be enlarged to include more popular food trucks, more themed games and more locally crafted beer and spirits. There will also be a greater variety of information booths from local businesses and vendors. The sponsors have lined up an array of popular musical ensembles.


After much anticipation, Mayor Carlo DeMaria announced last week the headlining musical performance for the fourth Annual Village Fest…Sugar Ray. Sugar Ray is an American rock band from Newport Beach, California. Originally forming in 1986 and playing a heavier nu metal styled music, the band achieved mainstream popularity in 1997 with their more pop influenced single, "Fly". The song's success of which led the band to shift its style dramatically to the more radio-friendly pop sound with their subsequent releases. Their best-selling album, 14:59, was released in 1999, and featured popular singles "Every Morning", "Someday", followed by a self-titled album in 2001 featuring the single "When It's Over".
