For 2015, this festival will be produced at The Meadow, located on the campus of the Flint Cultural Center August 14 – 16, 2015. The Meadow is just north of the Flint Institute of Music, east of I-475, south of Robert T. Longway Blvd. “The whole area is clean and the grass is plush. Large trees will provide shade from the hot August sun.” states Greg Fiedler, President & CEO of Greater Flint Arts Council (GFAC).

The festival schedule includes a variety of performances by locally known, regionally known, and internationally known musicians. “Come early and see them all,” states Fiedler. “You will be impressed by the caliber of our local and regional musicians who play early in the day.”
