WARMfest promotes environmental responsibility, independent business, local artists, and communal wellness. And we use music, art and recreation to achieve our mission: educate the community and re-envision this great river as a recreational and visually appealing natural resource. WARMfest will realize this vision through the four-day cultural experience and music festival that is WARMfest!
“We are happy to return for a second year and both further our mission and bring a high quality, high-energy community event to Broad Ripple,” said WARMfest founder Dan Ripley. “This year’s event will span four days and feature a kick-off night on Friday, national and regional concerts on Saturday and Sunday, and a community day on Monday.”
Aside from music, there are tons of other activities:
WARMfest will bring together many key Indianapolis cultural groups: Indie Arts & Vintage Marketplace, Indy Parks & Recreation, Broad Ripple Music Fest, Joyful Noise Recordings — just to name a few!
WARMfest is more than an art and music festival. It is an experience. White River was once considered one of America’s most-threatened rivers. But with WARMfest, we plan on returning the river to its prominence as one of Indiana’s preeminent natural wonders. A portion of the proceeds from WARMfest will benefit the Indianapolis Parks Foundation.
