Gainesville FESTival fiends, the time has come for you to grab your fanny pack, and prepare for FEST 2018.

Tony Weinbender has two great loves: music and Gainesville. Seventeen years ago he lost $500 trying to combine those, but in doing so, he created an event that became a city staple and a community that never stops coming back for more.

Fest Wrestling is all about promoting independent wrestlers while encouraging intergender wrestling and equality.
