Helping Others Through Music

Proceeds generated from Bud Light sales at the Ohio Valley Music Festival will be dedicated to the Legion of American Veterans, benefiting United States veterans and local non-profit organizations. The strength, courage and sacrifice of our military men and women is amazing and we want to make sure to help them on the home front. In addition to our donation, United States veterans and active military will receive a discount on their tickets the day of the show.

The Legion of American Veterans is a local 501C3 charitable organization formed by American Legion Post 64 members to assist local community members in need. Their efforts range from holding fundraisers for the new generation of veterans, to providing clothing and food donations to women’s shelters, senior centers, public servant organizations, and more. The Legion of American Veterans are working to provide a better community for those who served and those who were impacted by that service. The Ohio Valley Music Festival is proud to be a part of this mission.
