Milk District sets up the barricades for Rockin' Robinson music fest this Saturday


The Milk District became an official Main Street District last year, and for those wondering what that actually means, look no further than this weekend’s Rockin’ Robinson festival. Using the clout of the Main Street program, the organizers were able to pull a permit to close down a stretch of Robinson Street for a street party – no small feat since Robinson is owned by the Florida Department of Transportation rather than the city. The festival features 18 musical acts setting up onstage and offering everything from groovy jams (the Groove Orient, Leisure Chief) to country (Prison Wine) to a hip-hop collaboration between MC B.T.R.U.E., beatboxer/looper Rubox and bassist Dave Mann (called B-TRubox Mann, obviously). Along with plenty of bars, food trucks and vendors, it’s a testament to the diversity of the Little Main Street That Could.

4 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturday, March 10 | The Milk District, East Robinson Street and North Bumby Avenue | | $10-$35
