Rock the Lawn is an all-school reunion and music festival on the Academy of Holy Angels front lawn including awesome food, a beer and wine tent, games, music and great fellowship.  The purpose is to bring all AHA community members together including alumni, parents, current and former teachers and the Sisters of St. Joseph to have fun! The event in 2016 was a smashing success with approximately 1500 people attending this first time event!

Plans are in the works for Rock the Lawn 2017!  The date has been set and is:  Friday, June 23, 2017!!!   We can't wait and we hope you plan to attend with your family, classmates and friends!  Please consider volunteering to serve on a committee for 2017.  We are also in need of business sponsorships.  The advertising opportunities are outstanding!  Contact Jesse Foley at for more information!
