WeishFest (pronounced “Wish” Fest) is a one-night music festival unlike anything in the area, held by and for a 501c3 non-profit organization called The Andrew Weishar Foundation ("Weish4Ever"). Every dollar we raise at this event benefits Weish4Ever's mission of providing direct support and financial relief to families with adolescents and young adults battling cancer. WeishFest started in 2013 as a summer music festival at Standard Bank Stadium in Crestwood, IL. In 2016, the event moved indoors to 115 Bourbon Street to create a one of a kind, intimate, indoor music event.
WeishFest has quickly gained national attention and 2019 will be the event's 7th year as the biggest party on the Southside of Chicago. Along with our local cover band favorites, WeishFest has welcomed national artists such as Dispatch, O.A.R., Third Eye Blind, Easton Corbin, Rodney Atkins, Eddie Money, Warrant & more!
Since its inception in 2013, WeishFest has continued to attract crowds. Starting off at Ozinga Field (formerly Standard Bank Stadium) and now at 115 Bourbon Street.
Thanks to WeishFest, The Andrew Weishar Foundation has granted over $1 million directly to families battling cancer.
WeishFest brings national headliners to an intimate venue and unbelievable atmosphere. Past nationally recognized performers include: Dispatch, O.A.R., Third Eye Blind, Easton Corbin, Rodney Atkins, Eddie Money, Warrant & more.
In just 6 years, your support of WeishFest has brought immediate joy and relief to over 200 families battling cancer in Illinois, Indiana, and beyond.
