What is Hoodstock?

Unified Community Connections’ annual fundraiser isn’t a traditional gala, and we think that’s a good thing! Hoodstock is a grassroots music festival based on the folk-rock music scene of the late ’60s and ’70s. Our motto is, “Just say no to black tie and yes to tie-dye!”

Local bands, including event headliner Roses n Rust, perform an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary rock, pop, soul, blues and country music. Join us for a laidback, family friendly evening dedicated to helping Unified continue its mission to support people with disabilities.

Peace & Love

Thank you to everyone who supported Hoodstock XVIII. This event would not be possible without our guests, donors, sponsors, musicians, planning committee, staff and volunteers. We raised over $84,000 thanks to your generosity and help.

Special thanks to Russ Causey, the founder of Hoodstock and the leader of Roses n Rust, the headlining band for Hoodstock. He and all of the musicians who perform at Hoodstock play for free, and many have a direct connection to the mission of Unified Community Connections.
