BOCA RATON, Fla. (April 19, 2022) -- As the school year wraps up, it is time to celebrate with family, friends, and the community at Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC) and the School of Rock Boca Raton’s Community Picnic & Music Fest, Saturday, May 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the lawn at BRiC. As always, there will be plenty of free parking at BRiC located off Yamato Road at 5000 T-Rex Avenue, Boca Raton.

The free and open-to-the-public community event will include live music featuring the School of Rock Boca Raton’s House Band and Mid-Season Showcase student performances, a “musical instrument” petting zoo experience where children can try out various instruments and join in on singalongs. Festgoers will also enjoy a live animal petting zoo, a variety of food truck cuisine, water games, interactive activities, giveaways and more. Attendees should bring their picnic blankets and chairs for the fun-filled community day.

 “The event is an ideal opportunity to celebrate the start of summer as a community with all that BRiC has to offer,” said CP Group Director of Communications Giana Pacinelli. “We have been eager to leverage our massive outdoor space for live events and are pleased to partner with the popular School of Rock Boca Raton and welcome the community to our campus for a fun day with family and friends.”

Owned and operated by CP Group, BRiC is the largest single facility office building in Florida at
1.7 million square feet. Designed by iconic Brutalist architect Marcel Breuer, the campus was originally built in 1969 for IBM and is home to the invention of the first personal computer. CP Group acquired the campus in 2018 with the vision of transforming BRiC into the technology and life sciences hub for the Southeastern United States with unparalleled amenities. Home to tenants such as Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Kroger, Modernizing Medicine and Canon, BRiC’s new amenities include a coffee shop with a lakeside patio, conference center and 7,000-square-foot fitness center.  A second coffee shop, courtyard and autonomous grab-and-go are currently under construction.  Learn more about BRiC’s transformative plans at http://www.workatbric.com/support.

Co-owner Darek Bloch. “The extraordinary venue and open space provide the ideal stage to
showcase The School of Rock and our talented students.”
