If you sit quietly with the idea of a substance free music and arts festival, you will see that it’s a great
idea. This idea comes from
five crazy people in recovery. Please join us and hundreds of other
music lovers for
NorCal’s biggest annual fun and sober music fest with top
notch talent in always cool and sunny Sonoma. Join us with your spirit and love for music, good vibes and fellowship! RockSoberFest concert pro-
ducer and promoter Jef frey T rotter has been sober for 23 years, artistic di re c t or of Shake- speare at Sti nson for 20 years, and has long felt the need for a substance free envi- ronment for music festivals. “It
clear that the time had come for a festival created for peo- ple who want to go out and have fun without mind or mood altering substances. We are putting on a wildly fun event where everyone can feel comfortable
are with others who are like minded and supportive of up- lifting entertainment.” RockSoberFest is a special opportunity to celebrate the sober lifestyle surrounded by a community of
free music fans. All fellow- ships are welcome! Twelve- step meetings will be held before and after the shows. Several fantastic bands and other performers will get the crowds dancing under the summer sky.

Thailand’s name in the Thai language is Prathet Thai, which means “Land of the Free.” It is the only country in Southeast Asia that was never colonized by a European na- tion. The term may also refer to an ethnic group from which many Thai people descend.
Thailand has had several names over the centuries. For hundreds of years it was known by the names of its dominant cities, such as Suk- hothai, Ayutthaya, and Thon- buri. Since the 1800s, it has repeatedly switched back and forth between Siam (Sanskrit meaning dark or brown) and Thailand.
Thailand set the world record of the longest line of washed plates in May 2010 when 10,488 washed plates were lined up. However, that record was crushed on April 6, 2011, in India when 15,295 washed plates were lined up, equaling more than 2.36 miles.
Russia is the largest country by land mass in the world. At 6.5 million square miles (17 million square km), Russia is 1.8 times larger than the United States and is slightly larger than Pluto, which is only 6.1 million square miles (16.6 square km).
Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. ~ Einstein
