Musicians, artists and many others in Murfreesboro’s creative community came together on Saturday to attend the Boro Fondo Bazaaro, a music and arts fair that doubled as a flea market. The event was held as a fundraiser for Boro Fondo, an annual bike, music and arts festival held in Murfreesboro to celebrate and promote local music and arts.

Jack Brunson, organizer of the Bazaaro and an organizer on the Boro Fondo planning committee, expressed a great deal of gratitude to everyone who made the fundraiser a success.

“We doubled the Fondo fund and had a blast doing it,” Brunson said. “Thank you to everyone who popped in, hung out and dropped a few dollars to support local art and Murfreesboro’s largest independent music and arts festival.”

Jack Brunson, The Rhinovirus, Katherine Parmalee, ArtbyRC, Delaney Fitzhugh and Amber Duarte, as well as several others, hosted booths to sell their hand-crafted, homemade or restored paintings, posters, t-shirts, skateboards and guitars, as well as other artistic endeavors.

One of the more memorable booths of the day was Ethan Rose, another organizer for the Boro Fondo festival, who was screen-printing and cutting records live, offering an exciting behind-the-scenes look at his work.

High energy musical performances came from DUO, Finally Gravy, The Strumms, Ashes of Folly, Thunderfrog, Apathy Wizards and Fischer’s Kitchen.

This year will be Boro Fondo’s fifth festival, aptly named “Boro Fondo no. 5.” The festival will run from April 20-22 and will feature performances from around 70 acts, including several who played at the Bazaaro.

More information for the Boro Fondo festival can be found on their website.
