It was obvious the day would be one to remember as the dunk tank was shuffled in over the rolling green lawn. Over 200 attendees tuned in as music rang from bass filled speakers while visitors extended beach towels in preparation of what one attendee referred to as, “San Bernardino’s own mini Coachella Festival.”

The stage, haloed by a field of iconically California-esque palm trees, hosted 10 hours of non-stop performances for the crowd to dance to—and that they did.

The second annual End of Summer Festival (EOSF), which took place in San Bernardino at the historic Wigwam Motels, showcased some of our community’s most determined young talents. Live artistry ranging from breakers, taggers, painters, and everything in between, met alongside innovative clothing vendors and merged with a fist full of some of the hottest music performances around.

Black Rosette, photographed above, shared the stage with new talents to grace this year’s lineup including What Hands Are For, Ramone Jones, and Zentonic. Returning highlighted artists include VCR Monster, Gatsby, and several performances from Inland Empire based music label, Black Cloud Music.

The inspired thinkers behind End of Summer Festival are dedicated to making the arts scene of our community as inclusive as possible. By presenting events that combine ingenuity into our culture, they are finding new ways to independently bridge the gap between what their talents can do, and what they will do to affect our community for years to come. Keep a watchful eye out for the next wave of bright ideas to come out of this batch of creative collectives.
