The highly caffeinated 5k + music festival

Highly Caffeinated 5k and music festival


The Highly Caffeinated 5K + Music Festival makes its debut on Saturday, August 21st.

Sponsored by Connecticut’s Highly Caffeinated endurance team, this event combines our love of athletics, music, fundraising and of course coffee as we raise a bunch of money for an amazing cause!

Our beneficiary is Connecticut’s chapter of the Make A Wish Foundation which works overtime to grant wishes to children who have been diagnosed with a critical illness.

The fundraising goal for our inaugural event is $20,000 which will grant approximately 2 wishes for children right here in CT – more important than the money is what we’re ACTUALLY doing – giving hope to children who need it most.

The 5K goes from 10am-10:30am followed by the music festival which runs from 10:30am-8pm  with ten amazing artists & bands who have graciously agreed to pour their heart out on our stage to help us in our fundraising goal!

LINEUP OF ARTISTS: 10:30am – Gracie Day | 11:30am – Canyon Sharits | 12:30pm – Brian Jarvis | 1:30pm: Seth Glier | 2:30pm: The Penniless Wild | 3:30pm: Fast River | 4:30pm: Chris Trapper | 5:30pm: Sophie B Hawkins | 6:30pm: Pat McGee | 7:30pm: The Alternate Routes
