Welcome to StoneyFest!

Celebrate with Aaron,
with this annual event!

The two things Aaron treasured most in life were music and his friends. It did not take long for us to recognize that we could bring these two elements together in the form of a celebration. Within a year, StoneyFest was born. In addition to highlighting local music, StoneyFest is an opportunity to bring together family and friends to honor Aaron’s legacy while raising the money we need to continue our work through the Memorial Fund.

StoneyFest 2020, is Cancelled.
New, Exciting Details to Come.

StoneyFest: 2019

Several changes were made to the format of the event for 2019. First, the event was shortened by one hour to create the feel of a continuous program, rather than a come-and-go music festival. For the adults, a beer garden a beer garden was added along with the return of the food trucks. For the young ones, the Kid Zone included games and craft supplies to make and trick out a customized cardboard guitar. Finally, several items were up for bid in a silent auction, highlighted by a guitar signed by the members of the band Styx.
