BIG RIG BREWERY presents HOPE VOLLEYBALL SUMMERFEST 2018!
It’s been 36 short years since Fred Logan and his group of friends started HOPE, which stands for Helping Other People Everywhere. Time has flown by and we’ve grown so much, not only in size, but in pride, in all that we have accomplished in giving back to the Ottawa community. For those of you that have been with us since the beginning, to those of you who joined us for the first time this year – a big THANK YOU and see you this year on Saturday, July 14th! Let’s celebrate!!
THE HOPE MAINSTAGE
The HOPE Mainstage concert area provides music-lovers a great musical experience with plenty of elbow room in the swelling crowds. SummerFest has taken advantage of the existing hillside available at its traditional home by Mooney’s Bay to provide a natural amphitheatre accompanied by a bigger and better stage and soundscape. Located at the north end of the beach near the Hog’s Back Road Marina lot, this is a licensed area so bring your ID! Non-registered participants must purchase a wristband to access.
Our opening acts for 2018 Are:
Bitter North: 11:15am to 12:00pm
Alison Rose: 12:15pm to 1:00pm
Eric Eggleston 1:15 pm to 2:00pm
Our Co-Headliners for 2018
