“Careniroll is my brainchild. It is a duality of ideas such environmental awareness and the Earth Day combined with the environment within oneself, with a focus on real life issues such as mental health, addiction and gay rights, ”said Spencer Lavoie, founder of 4Life Entertainment, who noted Tapestry Health will have a tent at the event with counselors on hand.

Popular rapper, singer, and songwriter Wiz Khalifa will headline Friday evening’s musical lineup along with rapper and reality star Waka Flocka Flame. Saturday night features DJ, songwriter, and electronic music producer GRiZ, along with rapper and actor Method Man and rapper Redman.

There will also be four stages of musical entertainment throughout the day on Friday and Saturday with 75% of the lineup featuring local and regional performers, including many female and LGBTQ acts, Lavoie noted, adding that the acts move to one stage on Sunday. Among the lineup of some 50 musicians and acts include Danny Pease & the Regulators, Lush Honey, Honeycomb and Friends, Shantyman, She-Wolf, Ms. Laura Michelle, Hershe, Kerry Quirk, Loud Life, Xpresso, Gingerlo and a host of others. There will also be a Pride parade on Saturday that begins at 3 pm and marches to the main stage for an electronic musical performance by queer musician Wreckno.

Lavoie noted that music on stage will often be accompanied by a colorful display of laser lights.

No Carniroll is worth its name without some tasty fare. There will be 12 food trucks onsite, many new to the area, serving up popular comfort foods to more inventive menu items such as egg rolls filled with something special for every taste.

Additional highlights include an Exotic Car Show on Friday and Saturday featuring over 75 luxury cars such as Bentley and Lamborghini models, as well as a custom-built Mustang. Wrestling fans can see plenty of action in the ring on Friday and Saturday with the Roll Up Rumble presented by Blitzkrieg Pro Wrestling. There will also be carnival games and rides requiring the purchase of tickets.

Considered an adult event on Friday and Saturday, those attending must be at least 18 years old or 16 accompanied by someone at least 18 years. All ages are welcome on Sunday which is Family Fun Day when children under age 10 are free, as well as all residents of Northampton, Easthampton and Amherst.

Family Fun Day will feature an array of activities for families including a “massive” Easter Egg Hunt for the holiday, Lavoie noted, as well as fun games such as leg races and scavenger hunts and more, along with a performance by the Northampton High School Band.
