Hoodstock XVIII back IN PERSON!

Mark your calendars for Hoodstock XVIII back IN PERSON at a NEW VENUE on Saturday, October 23!

Hoodstock is a grass roots music festival with its roots based on the rock/folk music scene of the late ’60s and early ’70s mixed with contemporary music.  Originally founded in 2004 as a neighborhood event before its popularity made all the Baltimore region its “hood” Hoodstock is now a major fundraiser to benefit Unified Community Connections and all they do to advance the independence of children and adults with disabilities.

Hoodstock is considered to be an anti-black-tie charity event where guests “Just Say No to Black-Tie and Yes to Tie-Dye!”  It is a casual, laidback, family friendly event where attendees enjoy live music along with good casual food, beer, and wine all for a modest ticket price.  Many of the bands that perform include band members who have a direct connection to the mission of Unified Community Connections.  Last year’s first ever virtual event raised $80,000 and attracted more than 1,200 viewers with people tuning in from 12 different states as well as Thailand, Australia, Canada and the U.K.!
