T-Town Rocks Music Festival is July 29, at The Waterfront Venue at Narrows Marina. The event runs from 4 to 10 p.m. and features award-winning artists in the hip hop, country, and rock genres. Artists include DJ Jazzy Jeff, Tone Loc, Young MC, Wanz, Kid Sensation, Cromwell and local artist Aaron Crawford. Josh Pray, comedian, will be the event host for the evening. All proceeds from the festival will benefit local non-profits.

The festival benefits local charities including Boys & Girls Club of South Puget Sound, Cascade Regional Blood Services, Graduate Tacoma, Mary Bridge: Behavioral Pediatric Department, Pierce County Early Childhood Network, Tacoma Rescue Mission and World Relief of Western Washington.

We are so grateful to our event sponsors for making this festival possible.”
