PeteFest aims to raise funds and awareness for mental health advocacy while providing a fun, exciting, thought-provoking, and truly inspiring experience for all. In addition to spreading the love and appreciation of music, culture, art, and community through local artists and businesses, PeteFest focuses on environmental conservation and outdoor recreation. Come Dance, sing, camp, jam, and celebrate; come feel the beat and the revelation with friends, family, and total strangers; come ready to Rock the Elephant at PeteFest 2018!
The Pete Foundation proudly sponsors the University of Louisville AFSP Out of the Darkness Campus Walk 2018. Out of the Darkness Campus Walks raise awareness about suicide and help raise funds for suicide prevention work in the community and the nation.
With a focus toward today’s youth, their expression through art, and their power to stomp the stigma surrounding mental health, The Pete Foundation and PeteFest Music Festival are proud to host a "poster competition" for middle- and high-school students in Louisville. All students grades five through twelve were encouraged to submit a piece of art that would be the inspiration for the official 2018 PeteFest poster.
