THE HUNTINGTON LIGHTHOUSE
Lighthouse Musicfest 2021 UPDATE March 24, 2021
ATTN: LIGHTHOUSE LOVERS, BOATERS and SPONSORS
Let’s get this Party Started!
HLPS has been bombarded with phone calls and emails asking the question we all are thinking about, “is there going to be a 2021 Musicfest?” We are trying to remain optimistic by saving the date (Saturday, Sept 4, raindate Sunday, Sept. 5) with our fingers crossed but there are a few issues at hand and we could sure use your help…
We have just experienced a year like no other. The pandemic has taken a toll on everyone including the businesses of our many generous corporate sponsors leaving a huge deficit in the amount they are able to contribute.
The Musicfest is not just a fun event but it is THE biggest fundraiser supporting ongoing maintenance and preservation efforts at the Lighthouse. The problem is, our expenses to put this event on are a little over $50,000.00 and without upfront donations and sponsorships to cover costs we’re dead in the water.
So we’re appealing to all of you
Maybe you know a business that would like to become an advertising sponsor? If you have enjoyed the event in the past, perhaps you have friends, boating friends, crew, or your yacht club would be willing to contribute in name (in name or your boat) to the cost of the event. OR, maybe you would just like to become a Lighthouse member? Every little bit counts and be more important than ever this year!

We are happy to personally explain the options.

Please help us continue this great tradition.
We are most grateful for your generous support.
THE HUNTINGTON LIGHTHOUSE PRESERVATION SOCIETY, INC.
The Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society (HLPS) has proudly led the efforts for 12 years to produce the Lighthouse MusicFest, the only music festival in the world held on an offshore lighthouse. This much-loved, end of summer celebration brings together the community like no other event - from sail and power boaters, to kayakers, paddle boarders- all with the shared goal to help preserve our beloved town beacon.
This event has grown to over 1200 boats and raised thousands of dollars to restore and preserve the Huntington Lighthouse. Members of the HLPS volunteer their time for months to organize the event – booking the talent, scheduling supplies to the lighthouse, organizing complicated logistics and staging for the concert and most importantly, working closely with local officials to ensure the safety and security of the boaters, participants, volunteers, and the surrounding community each year.
