It’s almost time for the annual Foster Fest! So make sure to mark your calendar for a fun-filled weekend. This free event will be held on May 12 and 13 from 1 to 9 p.m. both days at the flea market site on Camp Foster.

There will be fun for all ages, including Fun Land rides and bouncers, game booths and awesome live entertainment. Hungry festival-goers can chow down on a variety of mouthwatering delights, like sizzling burgers from Bulldogs, succulent BBQ beef brisket and pork shoulder from Hickory House All-American BBQ, cheesy pizza and Miami-inspired grub from the new 305 Latin Bistro. Patrons 20 years of age and older can enjoy refreshing adult beverages from Kanpai Lounge.

The headliner this year will be the fast-rising R&B-pop singer, songwriter and dancer Kehlani. Signed to Atlantic Records, Kehlani is known for bringing back the traditional ‘90s R&B vibe. Some of her most popular songs include “Gangsta,” “Faking It,” “Good Life,” “CRZY” and “Distraction.” Catch Kehlani LIVE on May 12 at 7 p.m.

Foster Fest is free and welcomes all service members, their families and Japanese citizens. However, no one will be admitted with pets, outside alcohol, glass bottles or coolers. Free shuttle buses will provide transportation to and from designated parking lots on the base. Also, as always, MCCS encourages everyone to drink responsibly. Don’t drink and drive! Daiko and taxi services will be available. Local patrons can access Camp Foster through Gate 5, Kitamae entrance on HWY 58.
