The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about mentoring and the need for it in our local community. The festival has a goal of creating 200 new mentors to make a lasting difference in several children’s lives.

Project Primavera relocated its headquarters in June of 2015 from West Palm Beach to Palm Harbor. The organization helps orphans and at-risk youth through music and mentorship. Project Primavera sends artists and musicians on tours to share with their audiences about mentoring and partners with organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters and Youth Villages. While on these tours the artists perform free music workshops for various children’s homes and detention centers. Locally they started the Primavera Music Program that gives free professional music lessons to children in foster care through The Sheriff’s Youth Ranch. The program is expanding this year to include an inner city youth music program in Safety Harbor.

This is a music festival that has a star-studded lineup that includes some of South Florida’s most popular acts. The bill includes local funk superstars THE BLACK HONKEYS, folk rock legends HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL, country music’s outstanding group SOUL CIRCUS COWBOYS. The show is closed out by headliner ETHAN PARKER jamming to a choreographed fireworks show.
