DESCRIPTION:

Don’t miss this year’s Rosie Rally Home Front Festival! Once again, on August 11th, we will gather to celebrate the legacy of Rosie the Riveter, an icon for women across the world.

Join us at this free and family-friendly event for fun, festivities, great food, costume contests, dancing and East Bay Center ensemble performances! This year's event will honor original WWII Rosies and home front workers and celebrate the ordinary people from many backgrounds, races, and communities across the U.S. who stepped up to extraordinary challenges during WWII.

Featured East Bay Center artists include:

Tiffany Austin

With the June 1st release of her new CD, "Unbroken," Tiffany Austin further solidifies her standing as one of the leading vocalists on the current international jazz scene. Austin was propelled onto the national stage in 2016 when her debut recording, "Nothing But Soul," received rave reviews.


Joe Orrach


“Tap is the most important dance in America. It’s like jazz; it says things deeply,” says multi-faceted artist and teacher Joe Orrach, creator of a new brand of tap dance-theater that he performs locally and internationally in Paris and Shanghai.



Artemio Posadas


Artemio Posadas, son master artist, is a 2016 National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellow, as well as recipient of the 2016 Bess Lomax Hawes Fellowship “in recognition of an individual who has made a significant contribution to the preservation and awareness of cultural heritage.”


Valerie Troutt


In the East Bay, Valerie Troutt has established herself not only as an artist, but as a leader in the area’s famed creative community, founding MoonCandy, a soulful house ensemble that features the inspirational voices and composition of some of the East Bay’s most understated jazz, soul, blues, and gospel singers.
