We are huge fans of the music industry here at Champion Logistics. While our concert logistics department gets to have all the fun working with tour trucking and festival logistics, every staff member has their own personal favorite style of music. From country to hip hop, contemporary Christian to alternative, just walk from department to department or office to office and you'll be sure to hear a wide range of tunes. This love of music has inspired us to share with you some of the top Family Friendly Music Festivals across the country that we are going to, have gone to, are moving freight into and out of or are hoping someone invites us to!
Here’s a list of 7 of our Favorite Family Friendly Music Festivals happening this Spring through Fall.
