Looking for more than fireworks by the lake? The perfect solution is just a short trek on I-30 away at Lake Ray Hubbard at an even better price.

Quefest, a charity fundraiser sponsored by the Rowlett Exchange Club, offers big name entertainment including Joan Jett & the Blackhearts Saturday night just prior to the professional fireworks display.

Highlighting Saturday night’s event, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are best known for their number one hit "I Love Rock and Roll" which spent seven consecutive weeks in Billboard's top spot, Jett has been working in the music industry since 1975 and has released fourteen studio albums and six compilations. Jett was a founding member of The Runaways along with drummer Sandy West. Micki Steele, Jackie Fox, Lita Ford and Cherie Currie and is the executive producer for the film "The Runaways" which chronicles their career.

Sunday’s star power includes Tracy Lawrence. With more than thirty singles on the Billboard country music charts and eight Number One hits Lawrence has become a fixture of the Country music landscape. Lawrence debuted with the album Sticks and Stones in 1991, which produced his first, chart single and first Number One hit in its title track. Since that time, Lawrence has released nine studio albums, three compilations, a live album, and a Christmas album.

But this three-day event has fun for the whole family including “world class” barbeque and other “state fair” foods, carnival rides, additional live music including Jonny Lang, Cory Morrow, Black Tie Dynasty and Charles Robinson with the general admission ticket price of  $8 for adults and $6 for children under 12, onsite parking is $7 and remote is $5. VIP tickets are available for $95. Don’t forget to bring a blanket or rent a lawn chair onsite with festival seating.

The Rowlett Exchange Club’s goal is to ignite the spirit of community service across America. Profits from the three-day event will help fund programs like Americanism, community service, youth programs and Exchange's National project - child abuse prevention.

Improving communities, helping the disadvantaged and encouraging good American citizenship is the focus of the Exchange. Collectively, Exchange clubs donate millions of dollars and countless hours of volunteer service to better their communities each year.

The event will be held July 2, 3 and 4 at Elgin B. Robertson Park on Lake Ray Hubbard exit I-30 and Dalrock Road.
