White River Arts & Music Fest to debut

Three-day event set for Labor Day Weekend in Broad Ripple

INDIANAPOLIS — A major new festival known as The White River Arts & Music Festival (WARMfest) recently announced that its inaugural three-day event would take place on Labor Day Weekend Aug. 31 through Sept. 2 at Broad Ripple Park in Indianapolis. WARMfest will bring together several key Indianapolis cultural groups including Indy Parks & Recreation, Indie Arts & Vintage Marketplace, and Broad Ripple Music Fest. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Carl G. Fisher Society, a non-profit whose goal is to restore the waterfront of Broad Ripple.

“The vision for this festival has been developing for a few years,” said event founder and Executive Director Dan Ripley, “and the music lineup is evolving just as we had hoped. We look forward to reintroducing Indianapolis to the Broad Ripple waterfront resort area that has been lost for decades.”

 

“WARMfest promises an extraordinary weekend of fun, music, and more, all for a great cause — the restoration of the riverfront. This is an inspiring opportunity for Indianapolis community partners to come together and build something fresh and fun for all,” said Tamara Zahn, WARMfest advisor.

Live music will be featured throughout the entire run of the event on five stages and will include a mix of national, regional, and local talent. The initial lineup booked by MOKB Presents includes Big Head Todd and The Monsters, Michael Franti & Spearhead, JJ Grey & Mofro, G. Love & Special Sauce, Mayer Hawthorne, Delta Spirit, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Red Wanting Blue, Kopecky Family Band, and more. See lineup online at WARMfest.org

“Indy Parks is proud to welcome WARMfest to our season’s eclectic lineup of Indy favorites and new shows. Our partners’ efforts will round out summer with three days of music at Broad Ripple Park in celebration of our waterways and park spaces, and we look forward to this unique event,” said Jen Pittman, deputy director of Indy Parks.
