Proudly Supporting Veterans in Need since 2006, Michigan Vet Fest Music Festival (MVF) is a Non-profit event in metro Detroit with only one purpose - to raise funds to give to national and local non-profit organizations that help our veterans in need of assistance.
MVF is a Live Music Entertainment Showcase featuring many Michigan Bands, Musicians and Entertainers. We get to Support Our Veterans while enjoying Party-Dance Bands, Classic Rock, Pop, Country, Blues, Oldies, Modern Rock, a DJ spinning tunes between performances, and surprise guest celebrity appearances... All of them proudly "
Rockin' The House For Vets!"
In 2015, Half of the Proceeds from our Annual MVF Summer Showcase will go to the WOUNDED WARRIORS PROJECT. The other half will stay local in Michigan and go to Veterans Haven, based in Wayne, MI. Proceeds from additional MVF events will be split between Wounded Warriors Project and local Michigan Veterans non-profit support programs and organizations.
All Bands, Musicians and Celebrities are invited to stop in and Show Your Support For Vets! Come by anytime during MVF events to make a surprise appearance, mingle, take pictures with fans, pass out your info, meet other outstanding musicians, support a good cause.
YOU Can Be Involved with Supporting U.S. Veterans! Ask to volunteer, be a sponsor, be on the Vet Fest Committee (planning), ask to supply high quality items for auction or prize giveaways. Ask to become the next Official Photographer or Videographer, volunteer to design and print banners posters flyers. Volunteer to perform, volunteer to donate a photo booth or surprise us with something we hadn't considered. Here at MVF we have no ego, all help for veterans in need is appreciated and desired. Either business or personal, Be Proud To Be Known for Supporting U.S. Veterans.
We give a Big THANK YOU to all Performing Entertainers for donating your time and talents. Can't do the fest without you! And a Big Thank You goes out to all of you who attend the fest in support of our veterans. Good Cause + Good People = Having A Great Time!
