Since 2001, people from all over the Great Lakes region have come together to remember the 1969 burning of the Cuyahoga River and celebrate the renewed sense of eco-consciousness the infamous fire inspired. The goal of the Burning River Fest is to raise awareness about environmental issues affecting the Great Lakes region and Cuyahoga River ecosystem. Proceeds benefit the Burning River Foundation, a local non-profit organization that provides resources for the sustainable future of our waterways, which has donated almost $400,000 to date.
