Welcome to the Michigan Vet Fest website!
The Michigan Vet Fest Music Festival is a non-profit event in metro Detroit with only one purpose - to raise funds to help veterans in need.
Considering recent national news regarding our veterans, MVF is more important now than ever before.

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 = A Rockin' Good Time!
