Two local men are hosting the Music Fusion Festival, a one-of-a-kind event. The fun will take place from noon to midnight on Friday, Aug. 3 and from 10:30 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Huron County Fairgrounds.
The two-day music festival will give locals an opportunity to listen to some of the best bands northern Ohio has to offer, as well as introduce them to some national bands.
“There will be 40 bands performing at the festival,” said Randy Grosswiler, organizer and co-founder of the event. “We will have every type of music you can think of, so there will definitely be something for everyone.”
With music ranging from reggae to hip hop to rock, everyone’s music preferences will be met.
“A lot of the bands will be local bands, but we will have some national acts too,” Grosswiler said. “We have bands coming from as far away as Los Angeles and Chicago.”
Some of the bands that will be performing include David Costa, Dead Ahead, Oedipus and Keiadiaz.
Along with the non-stop music, the festival will also have plenty of unique items for sale. Everything from face painting and body painting to jewelry to blown glass will be sold at the event.
Food vendors will also be on hand to quench your thirst and fill your stomach.
“We will have a taco stand, brats, hamburgers, funnel cake, fries and a lot more,” Grosswiler said. “All of the food will be reasonably priced and range from $3 to $10.”
While no alcohol will be sold at the event, attendants can bring in their own. However, security will be searching everyone for illegal items as they enter the festival.
If you do not want the party to end, camping will be available.
“This is all about getting bands exposure and having a great time,” said Lucas Palomo, organizer and co-founder of the event. “There has been no other event like this in the area, so we hope everyone has fun and keeps coming back each year.”
Tickets to the Music Fusion Festival are $18 for a weekend pass or $10 for a single day pass. All passes come with a camping pass if you choose to stay overnight.
The event also has an altruistic spin – it’s a canned food drive, as well. All canned food donations will be given to the Norwalk food bank.
