We're hard at work planning for 2014, and for our die hard OFOAM fans, we have a special limited time offer, just in time for the holidays.
From now until January 1, 2014, you can buy the entire two-festival package for $85, (a $35 savings from the door prices)! You get:
• One 3-day pass for the Ogden Music Festival, May 30-June 1, 2014 at Weber County's Fort Buenaventura
• One 3-day pass for the Ogden Roots and Blues Festival, August 22-24, 2014 at Weber County's North Fork Park
Kids 16 and under get in FREE to all OFOAM events!
And we have some exciting news about both festivals:
Headlining the 7th Annual Ogden Music Festival are: GRAMMY nominees and JUNO award winners, The Duhks; 2006 AMA Lifetime Achievement Award Winner for Performing, Alejandro Escovedo; IBMA Emerging Artists of the Year, Della Mae; and masters of the single microphone, The Steel Wheels! Start practicing now to compete in the 2014 Utah State Instrument Championships, apply as a tweener, or simply to impress your friends in the campground.
We're in the early stages of planning for the 2nd Annual Ogden Roots and Blues Festival, but are thrilled to announce we have just confirmed 4 time Grammy award winner, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Musicians Hall of Famer, Booker T. Jones! We're also looking forward to having the Zydeco Music & Creole Heritage Awards Accordionist of the Year for 2007, Jeffrey Broussard and the Creole Cowboys back on the OFOAM stage.
It's that time of year when we all look back and reflect. OFOAM is thankful to everyone who helped OFOAM have a successful 2013!
If you came to either or both festivals, our free outreach events, or the Dave Alvin show at Peery's Egyptian Theater, thank you! We couldn't bring great music to Ogden if we didn't have such an amazing audience. If you enjoyed yourself, tell your friends about OFOAM and invite them to our festivals. Our best marketing tool is you!
Volunteers! Those of you who volunteered made 2013 the best year yet for OFOAM. You were excellent hosts, helping everyone feel welcome, giving directions, helping kids feel special, keeping the festival grounds clean and safe. We couldn't have had such an amazing time without the time you gave. We hope you'll consider volunteering again this year.
To our Sponsors and Grantors, we love that you’re sharing the vision with us: Bring great live music to Ogden and Ogden Valley, make it affordable for all and free and accessible to kids, 16 and under. We are so grateful for your support!
Finally, we’re happy to share the good news that OFOAM’s founder and executive director, Michelle Tanner, was honored by Ogden City Mayor Mike Caldwell at the 2013 Mayors Awards in the Arts for her contributions to building a better community through music! We’re energized and inspired to continue building community with you in 2014. Hope to see you at our festivals!
