Don't miss — PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ!

September 21, 2011
In 1931 the Paramount Center for the Arts opened, and in 1991 it re-opened after a huge restoration. As a result, the Paramount Center is fortunate enough to celebrate both the 80th and 20th anniversaries this year!

The Paramount is holding its 80th Anniversary Celebration this Saturday evening. The elegant evening will be host to music, live and silent auctions, a cocktail supper, and a chance to win $10,000! Tickets to this wonderful event are $125. The price includes the $100 ticket price, and the $25 drawing entry.

After all the planning, late nights and great music, it's hard to believe Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion 2011 is already over. It's an emotional experience to see those stages coming down and the sound of street sweepers replacing the rhythm of the music. It's something us folks here at the festival liken to a death. Our hearts are heavy with the bittersweetness of it all, but filled with gratitude to everyone who helped us pull it all together.
