On behalf of all the members of the Marshall Sounds of Summer committee, we would like to thank everyone for participating in your community festival.   We try to add more events, change others and work with our local businesses, individuals, and other community organizations to give you reasons to enjoy the weekend.


Now at the conclusion of our 5th year, we continue to be proud of having a community celebration, and to be able to continue with our mission, of having, Family, Fun, Free events.


All of our hard work would not be possible without the continued support and encouragement from our sponsors.   Be it their financial or in-kind contributions, we thank them, and as you see these people, or visit their business, we ask that you thank them as well.


This is your community. This is your community celebration.  This is just another reason that all of us are happy and proud to call Marshall our home.


We always welcome input and individuals to join our committee.  If you’re interested, please let us know.


We hope to see you all again next year at our 6th annual Sounds of Summer celebration…. always the 3rd weekend in August.
