IDYLLWILD STRONG: Cranston Fire Benefit Festival
August 17, 2018 • 3:00 pm - August 19, 2018 PDT
Idyllwild Strong is a benefit festival taking place August 17-19, 2018 in the town of Idyllwild, California. Over 13,000 acres of our mountain home plus the houses and property of our neighbors were destroyed in what has been dubbed the Cranston Fire, which was set by an arsonist on July 25, 2018. The community has banded together after the fire but many people are still in dire need of help, especially those who lost everything in the blaze.
The response from town as well as neighboring communities has been astounding! This festival will bring much needed revenue to the local businesses of Idyllwild, as well as provide relief for those victims who need it most. This is a 501(c)3 nonprofit event. All monies raised will be dispersed amongst the victims tax-free, and all donations made will be tax deductible. There will be donation stations at all 12 participating venues, plus raffles and silent auctions for the 60+ items that have been donated.
70+ bands and artists will perform over three days at 10+ venues in town. Friday, August 17th from 3-10pm; Saturday, August 18th from 12pm -10pm; and Sunday, August 19th from 12pm-8pm.
