A fitting ending to the Veterans Freedom Music Festival...
The Veterans Freedom Music Festival was the brain child of Terry Gillispie, from Lincoln Nebraska. In 2011, Terry asked Dave Rusk, a local radio executive and 'self-styled musician,' if he would play some music for the Veterans at the Lincoln VA hospital.
Dave played the first year, but both he and Terry saw an opportunity to turn the idea into something really meaningful for THE Lincoln community, and as a way to honor our Veterans. AND THEN...
Dave and Terry along with a host of volunteers and donors came together and formed the Veterans Freedom Music Festival as a benefit for veterans.
The Festival has grown quickly and 2023 will be the 13th year. Top Bands in the area are featured, and the event has become 'Lincoln's Largest FREE Outdoor Music Festival.'
Visitors are encouraged to bring canned goods as separate Free Will Donations. There will be a container to place those items.
The Veterans Freedom Music Festival Event is open to the Public and best of all, Admission is FREE!!
