The event is an annual community project shared by the Rotary Clubs of Harriman, Kingston and Rockwood.

Admission is a donation of nonperishable food that will be donated to food banks in Roane County.

In lieu of a food donation, a monetary donation will be accepted.

In addition, a solicitation for money will be made during the festival to collect funds to be divided and sent to each band to help with expenses.
