About the Committee

The Veterans Freedom Music Festival was August 4 from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm in The Railyard below the Cube. The Committee met periodically to organize and finalize major decisions so the Festival could run smoothly. The purpose was to create a great experience for the attending public, but especially to honor our Veterans everywhere.
