Dream Big Indianapolis. The inaugural WARMfest-a Three Day Festival celebrating music, art, craft, food, and fashion, in the heart of Broad Ripple along The White River, may one day prove to be Indy’s answer to Chicago’s Lollapalooza.
Organizers, volunteers and vendors had an amazing run at their first go, bringing this festival to the heartland. Despite the minor hiccup due to inclement and unpredictable weather on Friday, WARMfest turned out to be the perfect way to celebrate Labor Day Weekend and the fleeting moments of summer. Local as well as national acts performed during the three day festival, August 30-September 2nd. There were several food trucks on hand, as were Sun King, with a beer garden located conveniently close to the main stage.
One could spend hours shopping the countless vendors and the unique curios and wares at the Indie Arts and Vintage Market Place, Or simply take to the shade or chairi n front of the many stages and spend the hours relaxing and listening to music, grab a beer at The Sun King Beer tent, or a bite to eat at the countless food trucks scattered throughout the grounds of Broad Ripple Park. WARMfest was a success and another not-too-be missed end of summer event, and we’re already looking forward to next year.
