The Ohio Valley Indigenous Music Festival and will be held on Aug 24-25, 2019 at Patricia Allyn Park 7266 State Rt. 48 Springboro, OH 45066. This year we be bringing in some new and exciting talent including multi national award winners Rona Yellow Robe, Ryan Little Eagle, Jonny Lipford, Douglas Blue Feather, Chief Golden Light Eagle, Heartwood, and the Miami Valley Flute Circle. There will also be community drum circle hosted by Adam Riviere. Some of these new performers are coming from as far away as Washington, S. Dakota, Iowa, New York, and Texas, so our budget to cover performer travel expenses will be greater this year.
This is a family friendly event that will feature award winning Native American music along with free workshops & presentations. In addition to live music, we will have vendors with Native American style flutes, arts & crafts, and food.
Thank you very much for your donation and support to keep the event, music, and culture alive! We couldn't do this without public support, so please donate now.

We are still in need of raising $980 by Aug 24 to reach our goal. In order for us to apply for and receive a grant next year, we have to show that we also have other means of successful fund raising. We've reached our goal the last 3 yrs, so please don't let us down!
We have now raised $1970 out of our goal of $3000. With just 7 weeks away, this year's Ohio Valley Indigenous Music Festival promises to be one of the best ever. We missed the deadline to apply for a grant this year, so we are actively seeking public support to help fund our event. This event is FREE and OPEN to the public, so please consider making a donation to keep the music alive. Thanks for your support.
