Supporting local music is very important in northeast Ohio. Going to local venues, seeing local groups and bands that come visit from out of town not only helps the economy but allows that location to grow and continue to help local talent grow.
The venue that hosts the Lorain County Music Fest has been around for ten years and is growing. It now has a special opportunity to purchase the property upon which the currently has three shows yearly and a chance to expand. They are a non-profit organization and do not need a huge amount of money to close the deal.
Tonight if you donate to the worthy cause your request gets move to the head of the line. It does not matter the size of the donation $5 or $1,000 you will get special treatment tonight. Fans that help this cause to support local music will be very appreciative and you get your song before other requests.

About this project
Lorain County Music Fest is a not for profit, for the LOVE of Music, donation sponsored, volunteer staffed, music supporters & performers event. It is our way of putting back the gifts we have into our community. We believe: Music is the Universal Language we ALL understand. We showcase established, as well as new, up & coming acts & also debut 1st time out performers, in a outdoor concert venue that welcomes all genres & all ages in a peaceful nature appreciative camping community atmosphere. In short we have provided through donations and volunteering, an affordable camping and music venue for all in our community and beyond.
This is a seasonal 3 day primitive camping music festival that showcases local live music in an open air venue. This is a not for profit family festival environment with merch and some food vendors, porta potties, etc.
Every year since 2005 we have launched this event on a wing, a prayer & lots of good Chi, (we did lose 1 year way back due to lack of funding) this August 5th-7th 2016 will be our 10 year anniversary! We have been hosting 3 events a year for the last few years, Cinco De Mongo Fest in May, Red Fall Fest in the fall. With Lorain County Music Fest in August being our biggest & longest annual event! We draw an average of about 250 to 300 people per show with our best attendance being near 450!
We now have a property owner that is willing to work with us on a lease to own for the permanent festival site. We only need $3,000 more to put down. The building on the property is sound & has been remodeled & updated to almost completion. Obtaining the property will mean we no longer have to struggle to pay for the venue itself (although all previous properties & their people have been amazing!) the donations can go towards the necessary promoting, porta potties, & other needs. Our mission is to make this a self-sustaining property with (already partially established!) food gardens, a new stage with up to date equipment, & sound with overnight housing for volunteers, and staff during events. We have been & will continue making & providing all natural/organic produce, salves, balms & other natural/organic products, plants & produce to the community, We already have established providers & customers!
