    RIO AND THE ROCKABILLY REVIVAL perform 8:00pm on the Budweiser Americana Stage. Ford Arts, Beats & Eats was founded to celebrate the quality of life in Oakland County by offering a culturally unique presentation of artists, musicians and food exhibits, from the Metro Detroit area, and throughout the United States. In November of 2009, Arts, Beats & Eats announced it would be moving from its former location in the City of Pontiac to Downtown Royal Oak. In 2010, Arts, Beats & Eats celebrated its most successful year to date, hosting more than 400,000 people over four days, and raising over $350,000 for local charities. The economic impact to the region was measured at $39 million. The festival was designed to provide outstanding family entertainment at a very low cost. In 2009 the festival added an admission fee. This $3 ($5 after 3pm) admission fee supports the festival and community as follows: .25 to Arts Advocacy, .25 to the City of Royal Oak, and 50% of the remaining admission fees to 13 local charities after gating costs. For a list of non-profit partners that will share our admission fee, click here. To date, over $4.5 million raised by the Arts, Beats & Eats Foundation has been donated to charity. Now entering its eighteenth year, Arts, Beats and Eats has celebrated many successes, including attracting large crowds each year, earning top rankings for its juried fine arts show, securing top national entertainment, and providing unique interactive programs for the family. Past music performers at Arts, Beats & Eats have included Brian McKnight, Montgomery Gentry, Live, The B52's, Wilco, The Isley Brothers, Collective Soul, Paul Rodgers of Bad Company, Martina McBride, G Love & Special Sauce, David Benoit, Jodee Messina, Blues Traveler, 38 Special, Rick Springfield, and many more. The festival has something to offer to everyone, in a child-friendly, safe and secure environment.

Bio: Front woman Rio Scafone is a living contradiction. She is both Rock ‘N Roll angel and brimstone incarnate; the preacher’s daughter and raven-haired pin-up.
