On the second anniversary of Hurricane Ida, the Island Strong Music Festival would like to thank our sponsors and everyone who came out to support this great event this summer. It was amazing to see the amount of people who came out to support Grand Isle.
With this event we had a vision that we could make a difference in Grand Isle by bringing people together on a weekend to hang out, talk and enjoy great music and just spend time on the island. We are blessed to call this place home and to have everyone visit and enjoy being together.
With all the support that we received from sponsorships and donations and from all those who came to the festival, Island Strong was able to make significant donations to rebuild the island. In 2022, Island Strong Music Fest was able to donate $115,788.68 to rebuild the newly named Island Strong Sports Complex. In 2023, we donated $20,000.00 to the Grand Isle School Athletic Department and $100,000.00 to the Town of Grand Isle to be used to improve drainage on the west end of the island. This section needs help to get water off Louisiana Highway 1 and drain water to Caminada Bay. We know this is just a drop in the bucket on the drainage issues, but it’s a start and better than doing nothing.
We have already started planning the 2024 Island Strong Music Festival and if anyone would like to become a sponsor or contribute to this event please reach out to us on this page.
Thank you!
