Festival organizer Michael Weaver reflects, “As we grow and receive national attention, we remain committed to our vision for a family-friendly, environmentally conscious, roots music festival in the great outdoors. The response to Red Wing III was tremendous, and we know that Red Wing IV will raise the bar once again.”
