DreamFest initially started as a one night celebration of local music.  The brain child of Catherine Evans and a direct reflection of her diverse artistic taste, DreamFest highlighted a vast majority of genres in a collaborative environment.  Attendance exceeded expectation with over 500 attendees.  DreamFest proved that there was a need for a more diverse platform for artist engagement and unity.  Now in its 4th year, DreamFest has expanded to meet that need and now includes three nights of innovative artistry and entertainment that encourages positivity, unity and emphasizes diversity in all areas of artistic expression.

 

“What we aim to do with the weekend is emphasize community, diversity, and unity. Aside from the more obvious tie-ins to MLK weekend and Martin Luther King’s dream in respect to unity and diversity, the "Dream" aspect also refers to the fact that we are all pursuing our dreams. And hopefully, DreamFest Weekend helps us all get that much closer to realizing them.”
