"We're moving it back to its original weekend," Scibetta said. " Last year was pretty tough with the rain, but we've had good weather every single year we've had it on these dates. So we hope we have a nice weekend and we can raise a ton of money for charity."
This year's Pubfest beneficiaries also changed slightly. Scibetta said the bulk of the money the event raises will still be given to The Variety Kids Telethon, which provides "aid and service to children the sick, the handicapped and the underprivileged," according to its website, www.varietykidstelethon.com. But instead of the Village of Lewiston receiving a small donation, the money will instead go to state parks. Lewiston Fire Co. No. 1 will also receive a donation, Scibetta said.
Like talent, pricing for admission is still being determined, though Scibetta said he's confident general admission will cost concertgoers $5 each day. Special "front of stage" passes, VIP box sponsorships and weekend passes – with admission to all three days of concerts – will also be available, he added.
More information about Pubfest 2014 will be released online at www.lewistonvillagepubfest.com as details are finalized.
