The Burning River Fest pokes fun at one of Cleveland's not-so-proud moments while conveying the importance of preserving Northeast Ohio's freshwater sources. Created by the aptly named Burning River Foundation, the fest takes place this weekend at the historic Coast Guard Station on Whiskey Island.

The indie rock act Arlie headlines Friday night and Cleveland’s Cloud Nothings get top billing on Saturday night.

Doors open at 6 each night, and the fun continues to 11 p.m. Tickets are $15 for each night. All ticket and beer sales will benefit clean water initiatives in Northeast Ohio. Find all the details on the website.
