All you have to do to help raise money and support our community and the Indian River Lagoon is drink a beer, eat delicious food and listen to live entertainment at LagoonFest 2015.
On Saturday, March 7, beginning at 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., the Marine Resource Council will be hosting the Lagoon Fest.
The LagoonFest is known as “the party with a purpose” because it offers the community an entertaining party, with delicious food and live music, all while raising money for the Indian River Lagoon.
This event will be located at the Ted Moorhead Lagoon House, in Palm Bay.
The Marine Resource Council will be serving up plenty of food, including mouthwatering barbeque, and cold drinks to wash it all down.
Live entertainment will include Pato Banton and the Now Generation, Austin Jenckes of NBC’s The Voice and Kyle Cook of Matchbox 20.
Other musical guests will include Bill (The Sauce Boss) Wharton, Josh Miller, The Lights Out Project, Inna Sense and Coastal Breed.
VIP and general admission tickets are now on sale for the Lagoon Fest and can be purchased online at http://marineresourcescouncil.wildapricot.org/event-1850244.
General admission tickets are now being sold for $12 online. The online option for ticket purchases ends March 5. After March 5, tickets will only be available at the door for $15.
The “Lagoon Lover” package is being sold online for $45, which includes one free drink and food ticket, a T-shirt and all-day admission to the Lagoon Fest.
The “Lagoon Ambassador” package includes access to the VIP area that has a private bar and silent auction, backstage passes to musical guests, two free food tickets, two free drink tickets, a t-shirt and all-day admission.

The purpose of the Lagoon Fest is to raise $75,000, to help benefit the Indian River Lagoon.
The Lagoon generates $4 billion a year, for the Space Coast’s economy and it is important that the community gives back to the lagoon and helps preserve its wildlife.
All it takes to help save the Indian River Lagoon is to enjoy a day of appetizing food, cold beer and live entertainment.
