|2017 marks the
sixth annual Tippapalooza music festival that is known
for providing the area with a great night of entertainment and for
benefitting the Tipp community. Tippapalooza was created by a group of
friends and musicians with the desire to play music, promote local
talent, and benefit local charities. This lead to the idea of a music
festival and Tippapalooza was born. The event is produced by volunteers
and the proceeds from this event will be returned to the community
through a donation to the Tipp Pride Association. |
The Tipp Pride Association has taken up the challenge of raising the funds to build a new stadium to replace the out of date, unsafe structure that has served the school and community for over 70 years. Their goal is to raise $5.6 million through stadium naming rights, sponsorships, donations, and fundraising events. Besides adding value and pride to the Tipp community, a new stadium means safer playing surface for athletes, safer facilities for guests and patrons, and opportunities to host a wider variety of community, athletic, and school events.
This year’s Tippapalooza will be held on Saturday, September 2nd, from 5-11PM. The gate opens at 5PM, music starts at 5:30PM. It will again be held at the Tipp City Eagles Park, 3853 Hyattsville Road, Tipp City, across from Tippecanoe High School.
Tippapalooza is a family-friendly event, the venue features a playground, basketball and sand volleyball courts, and plenty of space for kids to run around. Sample some of the delicious dishes from the onsite food and beer trucks. The event is $5 and parking is free, so come out and spend the evening with us on Saturday of Labor Day weekend.
