The Kallet Civic Center
159 Main Street, Oneida
12 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Logan Chesebro, drummer of One Man. The Band, wanted to help the cat problem in Oneida so he decided to put together a multiple band concert to raise money for the cause back in 2021. He presented the idea to Michelle Finn (formerly of Finnland’s Fosters Cat Adoption who has since moved out of state) and it took off from there. This year plans to be bigger and better held on Saturday, May 20th from 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Kallet Civic Center at 159 Main Street in Oneida, New York.
All money raised will go to the Oneida Community Cat Committee and Operation Wildcats Ltd. Whether you’re a fan of cats or not, this will help the feral community by trapping, neutering and releasing them to try to stop the rapid population growth in Oneida.
Six local bands are going to be playing:
One Man. The Band
Shane Archer Reed
The 169 Rhythm Section
The D-Dubb Experience
From 2 – 4 Drew’s Magic and Balloon Animals will be entertaining the crowd.
There will be 2 food trucks, Tubesteaks and Rossi Catering
along with the Bella Vita Café and The Blend for food options.
Many craft vendors, kid’s games, 50/50 raffles and tons of basket raffles.
Admission is free but a monetary or cat food or litter donation is encouraged.
If any business would like to make a monetary donation or submit a raffle prize, their name will go on a large board for everyone to see along with social media recognition.
The mission of the Oneida Community Cats Committee and Operation Wildcats Ltd. is to work with compassionate individuals, local governments, veterinary professionals, community members and other volunteers to achieve population decline of the unaltered, free-roaming, feral and/or abandoned domestic cats (“community cats”) in our area through education and the use of a humane Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program.
