Hoodstock XVII

Virtual Event

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, Hoodstock is now a major fundraiser to benefit Unified Community

Connections and all they do to advance the independence of people with disabilities.

Although COVID-19 is keeping us from having our traditional Hoodstock event this year we believe

THE SHOW MUST GO ON-line!

Typically Hoodstock is the anti-black-tie charity event where guests “Just Say No to Black-Tie and

Yes to Tie-Dye” while enjoying live music, good food and drink. Approximately 350 people

attended last year raising more than $93,000!

This year we’re going VIRTUAL! We’re excited to have this opportunity to bring the fun and spirit

of Hoodstock to more people!

When: Saturday, October 17, 2020

Where:  Get Ready to ROCK ON-line!

This year’s event will be virtual and streamed live via YouTube

Time:  8:00 p.m.

Event Headliner – Roses n Rust

This year’s event is sure to be VIRTUALLY the best Hoodstock EVER!

Hoodstock Facts: 

- 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.  Our last

year at the B&O 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

- Last year for Hoodstock’s SWEET 16 we had more than 350 guests in

attendance raising more than $93,000!

- In the 16 years that Hoodstock has been a charity event for Unified Community

Connections it has raised over $724,000

Unified Community Connections

- This year’s event will be VIRTUALLY the best Hoodstock EVER!
