Wreking Crue Headlines Cuba Dairy Days

The Village of Cuba is gearing up for a fun-filled weekend to celebrate their annual Dairy Days on June 16 and 17, and everyone is invited to join in the festivities.

This is the perfect event to bring the whole family. The festivities begin on Friday, June 16, at 4:30 p.m. with music by Josh Whiteman, followed at 6:00 p.m. by Tommy Brunett. Food trucks and the beer & wine garden will be available as well as fun activities such as the jail bail and kids’ carnival games. Community yard sales will take place all weekend long.

At 9:00 p.m., get ready to rock out to all of your favorite Mӧtley Crüe hits as Wrёking Crüe takes the stage with an electrifying performance that will have everyone dancing and singing along. Their high-energy show captures the essence of the iconic band, with powerful vocals, blistering guitar solos, and a pounding rhythm section.

On Saturday, there will also be plenty of entertainment and fun for the whole family. You can enjoy live music, delicious food, and exciting games and contests. Children can participate in a variety of activities designed especially for them, such a petting zoo at the Cuba Library, a visit with Chad Edwards “The Snake Guy,” crafts with Patti, or play with Rescue Pups. There will be live music throughout the day with the CRCS Pop Group and Jazz Band, Fair to Fiddlin, Generations, and Casual Remix. Check out the three-on-three basketball tournament, corn hole tournament, and craft show, all which will be located on East Main street. Be sure to stop by the car show, which will be on West Main street. At 3:00 p.m. the Dairy Days parade will take place down Main Street, always a fun time for all.

The Cuba Dairy Days is a wonderful way to celebrate the dairy industry and the hard-working farmers who make it all possible. It is also an excellent opportunity to spend time with family and friends, learn something new, and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Cuba, New York.

Be sure to mark your calendar for June 16 and 17, and join us for the Cuba Dairy Days. It is an event you won’t want to miss!
