To say the Virginia Avenue Folk Fest on May 9th is “folking up Indy” could quite possibly be an understatement. The first (and hopefully annual) festival will host 12 straight hours of live music on nine different stages from 70 different musical acts all on Virginia Avenue in Fountain Square. And if great local beer, local music, and local arts weren’t enticing enough, it’s all for a good cause with proceeds of the event being donated to Trusted Mentors, a local non-profit.
United State of Indiana (USI) isn’t just a popular apparel brand in Indiana. It’s a fashion statement with a cause that serves up a healthy helping of Hoosier pride, which may be exactly what we all are looking for right about now. The brand’s mission is clear, “USI exists to celebrate local stories, promote collaboration over competition, and remind Hoosiers that there’s something here you can’t find anywhere else.”
