Harvey Milk Festival Returns to Sarasota Next Weekend

Author: , May 9th, 2014

Harvey Milk Festival 2014Sarasota – Five years ago a small festival in downtown Sarasota caught the attention of music acts around the country. In 2014, the Harvey Milk Festival is set to be the largest event ever in the festival’s history–so much so that it extended the hours of its main festival by two hours to midnight.

“I’m a musician myself and I’m a promoter,” says festival organizer Shannon Fortner. “I do bookings so that’s my forte and this kind of combines my activism with being a musician and promoter.”

The festival honoring politician and civil rights activist Harvey Milk was the brainchild of Fortner, who wanted to create an event recognizing the late San Francisco official’s large involvement in the civil rights movement but also recognizing his love of the arts.
