Drum Fest 2016 Latest News

drum fest

Drum Fest has been a very successful yearly event since 2012. Unfortunately, we will not be holding our main Drum Fest event this year. We know many of you will be sad and perhaps upset by this news. Drum Fest is going through some growing pains and restructuring. This will make us a stronger organization and help us provide better services and events in the long run. Please be patient with us as we go through this time of change and bettering of Drum Fest as a whole.

We will continue to do smaller events throughout the year as well as doing some other online type of events. Please continue to follow us and stay up to date on the latest heppenings with Drum Fest. We promise to come back soon with an even bigger and better main event!

Thank you for your support!
