Fancy Fest

Yellow Springs, OH

This event has already passed by. Sorry.

Event Description

Fancy Fest was created last year as a celebration of the life of Nancy Brewer.  We wanted to keep that going, so we’ve got another event planned for this year!

Fancy Fest will be held on Saturday, September 24th, on an amazing plot of private land nestled in a beautiful natural setting and bordered by the Little Miami River.  Tent camping is available, and you can swim and kayak in the unspoiled stretch of the river that runs through the property. 


Arrows of Neon

Elmo (featuring members of Grover)

Great Northern String Band

Fancy Friends Open Mic Jam hosted by Aly Brewer and Ian Gross


Captain Contagious and the Burning Sensations - a very special late-night all-star jam featuring members of Arrows, Grover and GNSB!

Fest shirts will be printed up.  We'll have some available on-site, but if you want to ensure you get one, you can pre-order here.  These will be printed on 100% white cotton.  We’ll have a tie-dyeing station set up at the fest, and you can create your very own fancy shirt!  The artwork was designed by Nancy’s daughter Maris, and the words were taken from Nancy’s personal writings - a true work of art from two wonderfully talented women!

Super Important Info

We will not accept printed tickets!  We will do attendee check-in at the gate.  When purchasing tickets, please list the names of all attendees.  If you need to change the name of an attendee, please email

Nancy embodied the spirit of love and friendship, and this is our way to honor that spirit - by bringing you all together for a night of love and music, family and friends, camping and fires, and dancing under the moon and stars.  Tickets for this event are extremely limited.  Don’t miss out on this intimate overnight camping party with live music on a private island located within a nature sanctuary!  Get your tickets and come out to celebrate this beautiful life with us!
