We hope that this message finds you safe and well. We wanted to share an update regarding the status of Springfield’s largest Music Fest, scheduled for this coming July 2nd & 3rd in Downtown Springfield.
We can still execute a complete event if given a green light by June 5th- but every day thereafter will decrease our ability to guarantee a full event experience.
Please bear with us as we follow the daily developments and assess, by the day, whether to proceed with the festival. If we are able to proceed, be prepared for additional safety protocols to ensure everyone can enjoy themselves without unnecessary concerns.
2021 Logo Contest!
Every year we tweak "Festival Abe" just a little bit, and we have been fortunate to have some amazing artists design for us. We decided, in true community fashion, to allow our community to design this year's logo.
We are asking for artist submissions of the LoG logo (Festival Abraham) to be used as the primary image for the 2021 festival. This logo ideally will be used on our posters, ads, merchandise shirts, social media, and more! The LoG Directors will select finalists, and at-large public voting will be the primary determinant of the winner!
Winning designer will receive $100 prize, as well as select a charity to receive $100 donation from LoG.
Contest begins 4/3/2021 and all submissions must be received by May 6th. Finalists will be chosen by May 8th and winning design will be selected May 15th. Voting will be performed via Facebook, logmusicfest.org, or a combination of the above.
Submissions not used by LoG will remain the intellectual property rights of their creators. Submissions used by LoG in any commercial form will be licensed via permissions from their creators. LoG Directors reserve the right to final and ultimate editorial control of imagery used and publicized by LoG Music Festival.
Submissions should be sent to with the subject header "ART CONTEST SUBMISSION". To request a high-resolution "master copy" of the logo, email us above! Good Luck!

Our inaugural kickball tournament is open to all ages and co-ed teams. Minors will need a parent/guardian present to sign a waiver. This is a for-fun tournament with simple prizes for the winners; the main objective is to have a blast before heading downtown for the music festival! More information to come as the event details get locked in.
We’re adding a Horseshoes tournament to the festival this year. Join in the fun, toss a few ‘shoes, and work up an appetite and thirst to quench when you arrive at the festival after the competition. More details to come as they are solidified.
As part of the city-wide events connected to LoG Music Festival, we’re offering our first-ever Pickleball Tournament. More information to come as we secure additional details.
