Organizers say that the goal is to build on previous years success and continue to make the DIFA Summer Festival an event to be enjoyed by everyone in the region.
The DIFA Foundation was founded by Kelly and Willy Stevenson after the tragic loss of their son Aaron. The festival began as a way to ensure Aaron’s love for music would live on. To date, the DIFA Foundation has raised over $80,000 for local youth initiatives. Of this, the 1st annual DIFA Summer Festival raised $33,000 that was donated to Brockville’s 3 high schools, which supported their music departments and enabled them to expand other programs as well.
