Last weekend’s Miami Valley Music Fest held at Troy’s Eagles Campground promoted volunteerism and community spirit through blues, funk, reggae, and rock. Attendees enjoyed live music on four stages, free tent camping, food truck vendors, visual art displays by local artists, dance performances, and informational booths hosted by local charities. And, dancing. Don’t forget the dancing.
Local and regional bands showcased their talent while forgoing appearance fees in support of the event’s charitable focus. The Miami Valley Music Festival Association is a 501(c)(3) public charity, and its past grant recipients include the Cancer Care Center at UVMC, Channel 5 Public Broadcasting, Covington Outreach Association, Lincoln Community Center, and the Troy Rec Center.
Giant bubbles, face painting, campfires, and impromptu tea parties in the the delightful Fairy Town made the event family friendly. Those wishing to take home a souvenir found hand-crafted jewelry along with Mitch Barhorst’s stunning custom guitars.
