Harefest 8: The Mother of All Tribute Band Festivals
July 12 • 4:00 pm - 11:30 pm
J-Fell Presents and The Wild Hare Saloon present HAREFEST 8, July 12 – 14, 2018 at Pat’s Acres Racing Complex. This year’s festival expands to 3 days and features 22 bands, a Ferris Wheel, and multiple VIP areas.
“Similar to some of the other local festivals, we’re creating a unique community experience based around a mutual fandom of some of the greatest rock bands to ever roam a stage,” explains festival co-founder Jason Fellman.
The festival area includes tent camping around the Pat’s Acres Racing Complex track and makes use of an adjacent agricultural area for an RV village. The concert area will be enhanced with misting stations, free cold water stations, a photo stage (a smaller version of the main stage specifically for ticket holder photo ops with & without the festival performers), “Big Hare Station” for ticket holders to get an 80s ‘hair’ styling, a merchandise tent selling Harefest & band apparel, and food and drink vendors to be announced.
