Behind the scenes, the success of BiG Local Fest 2024 was made possible by the dedication and hard work of volunteers, sponsors, vendors, musicians, and BiG Local Club members. Their tireless efforts were instrumental in bringing the event to life, and their contributions deserve heartfelt recognition and appreciation.

In addition to celebrating community spirit, BiG Local Fest 2024 also served as an opportunity to honor a local hero.
