First annual Sacred Harvest Music Festival to showcase local artists


Sacred Music Festival

By Brionna Scebbi and By Brionna Scebbi

A new music festival is coming to Grand Rapids, Ohio, located about 20 minutes from the University, beginning Saturday, Sept. 16 at noon and going on into the night.

    The Sacred Harvest Festival will showcase the growing arts scene in Toledo and surrounding suburbs by featuring local musicians and artists.  

    The styles of music that will be represented at the festival vary: blues from T-Bone Jones, “psychedelic/futuristic space bass music” from Peanutbutter Williams, recreated funk from Waxtastic and psychedelic alternative/indie rock from Human Juicebox, just to name a few.

    The event is put on by FROGtown GlassROOTS, an event planning group in Toledo that aims to “grow community awareness while also growing and promoting the arts/entertainments market(s)” in Toledo. Waxtastic, a Toledo band, is also helping to coordinate this event in addition to performing at it.

    FROGtown GlassROOTS hopes for the event to bring more attention to the music scene in Northwest Ohio and for this new festival to become an annual event.
