Event Details 

Come on out for the 4th Annual Kids Rock Benefit Concert! This year's all-star lineup features therockinBaron Von Rumblebuss, the legendary Mister John Sayloremcee Tim Smith, and - NEW this year - a kickin' dance show with our preschoolers.

The musical good times will take place outdoors at the Forest Theatre on Sunday October 13, 2013 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.  Kids 12 and under are FREE.  

Kids Rock is a blast for the whole family!  Bring a picnic or enjoy baked goods from our bake sale.  Dancing, face painting, and family activities for all.  Everyone is welcome.  Invite friends, neighbors and passersby -- and help us spread the word!

**Be a "Kids Rock Star" by making a gift of $75, $150 or $300.  You support the kids in a major way, we throw in different packages of adult tickets and t-shirts, AND you get a tax deduction.  Everybody wins! 

All proceeds help the Chapel Hill Cooperative Preschool (CHCP) provide quality early childhood education for kids of all backgrounds.  Now over 50 years old, CHCP was the first integrated preschool in North Carolina.  State budget cuts have made private fundraising efforts to preserve quality and diversity more urgent.  Proceeds will be used for scholarship funds and professional development for our awesome teachers. Everyone working to put on the concert is donating their time and talents, including the musicians!  To learn more about the preschool, visit us at or contact

The Forest Theatre is located on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus; street parking adjacent to the theatre is free on weekends.  In case of rain, the concert will take place at 3pm at the American Legion (1714 Legion Road, Chapel Hill).  Please check back at this site to see if we are using our rain location.
