Winter is a Season of Light and Celebration.
Winter can be a difficult time of year. The historic temperature range for February 15th in Cleveland, Ohio is between -4° and 68° F (as according to weather.com). It’s hard to tell what we’re going to get, but no matter what it’s going to be awesome.
For the past 4 years, artists and musicians from across the midwest have been gathering in Cleveland, Ohio to create a cold weather festival experience unlike any other. Brite Winter 2014 will feature over 70 of the country’s top emerging artists on 10 stages, both indoors and outdoors, in an open urban setting. Music ranges in genre from Indie Alternative, to Folk, Punk, Rock, Bluegrass, Funk, Electronic, and Singer Songwriter with different stages designated for different styles of music. Outdoor stages are surrounded by lighting installations, food trucks, beer gardens, bonfires, games, and activities for people of all ages. All completely free and open to the public. You can even bring your dog.
Each year the festival has dramatically grown in size with Brite Winter 2013 hosting over 20,000 attendees on a 19° snowy winter evening. With your support we hope to continue the trend and create a continually better celebration each and every year.
This past year Brite Winter officially became a 501(c)3 non-profit arts and economic development organization. The festival will take place on February 15th partly from many community partnerships and sponsorships, but this Kickstarter campaign will directly impact our art and music budget. The more support you can give, the more light there will be.
As a special thank you for helping keep the festival free and open to the public, we've prepared this list of awesome rewards. We hope you'll join us!

Risks and challenges
Brite Winter is in it's 5th year of creating an outdoor art & music winter celebration. All major obstacles including permitting and production are already cleared and plans for art, music, and kickstarter rewards are in place.
The Festival is 80% funded outside of kickstarter through sponsorships, grants, and individual donations. If we fail to meet our goal the festival will go on but be faced with hard programming cuts in both art & music. Pending we meet our fundraising goal the festival and delivery of all rewards will come together as planned.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
