Honk! Fest Eugene (day 2 of 2)
June 9 • 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm• Free
A FREE festival of funky street music.
Honk! bands draw influence from traditional New Orleans brass bands, samba drum ensembles from Brazil, contemporary Balkan music, American funk, afro-beat, and more. The music is fun, groovy, and accessible to all. Honk!’s primary goal is to bring community together through music and art in public spaces. The festival happens mostly in the streets, and there is no entrance fee. Attendees are encouraged to donate, but it is not required.
Honk! events happen all over the country and world, including in Seattle, Austin, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, and more. Despite this, each Honk! event is organized by and for the community it takes place in. Every Honk! coordinator is a volunteer, and all donations go to event costs and paying artists. Honk! Fest Eugene is organized and run by a wide network of volunteers who come from many walks of life.
