Hoodstock XIV

Presented By Unified Community Connections

Hoodstock is a grass roots music festival with its roots based on the rock/folk music scene of the late '60s and early '70s mixed with contemporary music.  Originally founded in 2004 as a neighborhood event before its popularity made all the Baltimore region its "hood" Hoodstock is now a major fundraiser to benefit Unified Community Connections and all they do to advance the independence of children and adults with disabilities. 

Hoodstock is considered to be an anti-black-tie charity event where guests “Just Say No to Black-Tie and Yes to Tie-Dye!”  It is a casual, laidback, family friendly event where attendees enjoy live music along with good casual food, beer, and wine all for a modest ticket price.  Many of the bands that perform include band members who have a direct connection to the mission of Unified Community Connections.  Approximately 420 people attended last year raising more than $81,000!

  • - Hoodstock is a fundraiser for Unified Community Connections
  • - Hoodstock is meant to be the anti-black-tie charity event.  It is designed in the fashion of the late '60s and early '70s music festivals where all come casual, relaxed, and enjoy rock/folk music from multiple local and regional bands.  Hoodstock does not look or feel like the traditional gala and we think that is a good thing! 
  • - Hoodstock started in 2004 at Russ & Jen Causey's and Larry & Gracie Musher's Otterbein neighborHOOD backyard as a fun acoustic music party (no charity affiliation) with 30+ guests
  • - 2005 was the first year Hoodstock served as a fundraiser for Unified Community Connections.  Still in the backyard with about 70 guests the event raised $1,200
  • - In its third year Hoodstock moved to the Otterbein Swim Club to allow for more guests and better facilities.  Hoodstock was held at the neighborhood pool for the next 5 years with the last year having 187 guests and $20,300 raised
  • - The next 3 years (2011-2013) Hoodstock was held at the B&O Railroad Museum with the last year's event raising $65,000 with more than 350 guests.  Last year we had over 420 attend and raised more than $79,000
  • - Hoodstock moved in 2014 to the famous American Visionary Art Museum fondly known as AVAM where 360 attended and over $70,000 was raised
  • - In the 12 years that Hoodstock has been a charity event for Unified Community Connections it has raised over $496,000
