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.
