Aunt Unis will be the headlining act at the annual Sunflower Music Fest in Westport.

— Four bands of varying genres will perform as part of the annual Mental Health Association in Essex County, Inc. fundraiser, the Sunflower Music Fest, Saturday, July 14.

The event, which is the biggest for the Mental Health Association, will take place at the Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport with music starting at 2 p.m. and continuing through 8 p.m.

It will feature rock band Aunt Unis, The Roosters (Russ Bailey and Franz Pope), Rob Pulsifer and the Etown Express, and Speedy Arnold, who will also emcee the event.

“It is a good mix of bands,” Vanessa Moses of the Mental Health Association said. “There is a difference in everything, and we wanted bands that would attract a mix of generations.”

The performances will be held at the grandstand, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to sit on the horse track in front of the stage.

Along with music, there will also be events and vendors on hand.

“It will be a fun time for everyone,” Moses said. “There will be crafts vendors and a lot of food. There will also be a booth where we will have children’s activities like face painting, balloons and more.”

Also part of the day will be a basket raffle, 50-50 raffle and door prize raffles.

Tickets for the event will be available at the gate for $8 per person, with children 12 and under admitted for free.
