Big River Get Down Presented By Miller Lite

“There’s a certain pride that comes with doing an event that’s unique to your city. I wanted to start the ‘Big River Get Down,’ so that everyone in the city could have pride in this and say, ‘We do this once a year.’ It’s everyone coming together for a common cause. It’s really a win-win for everybody involved,”

About the Festival

“As someone born and raised in Hamilton, the recent revitalization of the city has been something inspiring to witness. Getting the opportunity the last few summers to perform with my band The Revivalists at the Rivers Edge Amphitheater has always been a highlight of my year and a great opportunity to reconnect with family and old friends. The Big River Get Down will serve as a way to help increase the profile of Hamilton, while bringing something unique directly to the people of the city. Over the coming years we hope to sustain and grow this event along with the continuing renaissance of Hamilton to bolster the economy and provide yet another pillar of confidence and pride for the community. This year, all proceeds will benefit Hamilton’s 4th of July celebration. Half of the proceeds will be donated towards the fireworks and the other half will be donated to the 4th of July concert at RiversEdge.” – David Shaw
