Stanly Community College will cap 50th anniversary celebration with Summer Sizzle

Stanly Community College has been celebrating its golden anniversary for almost a year now, but it is the community-wide finale that has everyone buzzing with excitement.

Running 2-9 p.m. July 16, the music festival features Right Turn Clyde, The Embers and Chairmen of the Board atop the hill on SCC’s Albemarle campus, 141 College Dr.

The Summer Sizzle is a free event and has activities for the entire family, including inflatables, food trucks, games and the Soap Bubble Circus.

Chairmen of the Board

“We’ve enjoyed celebrating our 50th Anniversary all year with everyone from alumni to retirees and students to museum guests,” said Jeania Martin, executive director of the SCC Foundation and event organizer. “Now it’s time to bring the community together and celebrate in a big way. What better way than to dance the afternoon and evening away with some of the region’s most popular bands.”

Right Turn Clyde

The main stage will be in the parking lot of the Snyder building and Martin recommends those attending the celebration bring lawn chairs. Parking will be available in all campus lots, with handicap parking available near the stage. Shuttle service from the lower lots will also be provided.

The Embers

Food and beverage truck options will include Tex Mex, pulled pork, pizza, wings, hamburgers, hot dogs, seafood, carnival food items, edible cookie dough and homemade ice cream.
