On Saturday, March 10th Orlando's The Milk District will see a party like never before. Rockin Robinson in The Milk District is set to shut down E. Robinson Street between Bumby and Graham Ave from 4 PM to 1 AM for a rock music festival in Orlando. This is the first time Robinson has shut down for an event and the Main Street's Executive Director Robert Soviero worked hard to make this happen. "I was asked when I came into this position what three things I wanted to do with The Milk District," Soviero tells us, "One of these things was to shut down Robinson for a big block party. They told me it was impossible."
The Milk District In Orlando Rocks Their First Street Party In March
Soviero describes Rockin' Robinson as the "redheaded stepchild" of the College Park District Jazz Fest and Mills 50 District Love Fest. Rockin' Robinson will host 18 bands on four stages. The main stage will be located right on Robinson Street with additional venues inside The Iron Cow, The Bull & Bush Pub, and Milk Bar Lounge. Talent includes The Groove Orient, Eugene Snowden, Leisure Cheif, Evan Taylor Jones, Plane Versus Cult, Prison Wine, Luke Wagner, The Robinsons, Milk Carton Superstars, and so many more. The event will also feature a killer lineup of Central Florida food trucks, artisan vendors, and live glass blowing by Apogee Gifts.
Rockin' Robinson will be the first signature event hosted by The Milk District's Main Street Program. The first was intended to be the Milk Shake Music Fest, but sadly the festival was canceled due to weather (thanks a lot hurricane Irma). Rockin' Robinson looks like it will make up for the lost time - the event will even host a pre-party from 3 PM - 5 PM at the National Real Estate Building on Bumby and Robinson. Hit up the pre-party for a free beer from the NRE! There will also be music and food.
Rockin' Robinson is sponsored by SweetWater Brewing so expect some great Georgia craft beer to be there. You can also find an amazing selection of microbrew beer at the many local Orlando bars on the strip. Tickets to this event will be available at the gate and will only run you $10. The best part? All the proceeds from this event will benefit The Milk District Main Street.
