Doors at 6:30pm
Touchstone's Barrio Stage
This event is FREE to attend. Donations are welcome!
Join us in Touchstone’s backyard for a celebration of the vibrant indie culture of Bethlehem. We kick off the evening with the dedication of Touchstone’s new mural by Monica Salazar, followed by the Lehigh Valley’s own LVAC Wrestling! (That’s right, there will be a wrestling ring and live professional wrestling in Parham Park!) Come watch LVAC favorites, such as Puff and Big Dan Champion, throw down in the squared circle and enjoy live music by We’re From Antarctica before and after the matches. Plus, food from Jenny’s Kuali and drinks by Sherman Street Beer Co.!

They are all looking straight at the audience and have a variety of facial expressions – from intimidating/threatening, to inviting smiles. They each wear their signature wrestling outfit. Above all of them are the words “FESTIVAL UNBOUND – TOUCHSTONE THEATRE, FRI. SEPT 29TH – 7PM FREE”.]
