35th Bois d’Arc Bash Is Friday and Saturday (Sept. 24-25) In Commerce


Commerce Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Paul Voss reflects on the return of the Bois d’ Arc Bash this weekend (Friday-Saturday, Sept. 24-25) to downtown Commerce. The Bash was not held for the first time in its history last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Paul says about 80 vendors are expected, fewer than in previous years, but he expects crowds to equal or surpass the 12-14,000 who have attended in the past. Musical headliners include Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute band Bad Moon Rising at 7 p.m. Friday; Jarrod Sterrett and the Hired Guns at 8:30 p.m. Friday; The Heroes, featuring Brad Davis and Joel Weaver, at 6:30 p.m. Saturday; and the Texas Eagles tribute band at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
