The 2012 festival raised $85,000 for local charities. Festival organizers are expecting record attendance and proceeds in 2013. WAMM Fest is organized by the volunteers from Sertoma Club of Greenwood and presented by Ray Skillman Automotive Group. WAMM stands for the four features of the event – Wine, Art, Music, and Microbrew.
The Sertoma Club of Greenwood developed WAMMfest as a charitable event showcasing the artistic, cultural and entertainment opportunities available within our community. Youth and non-profit organizations working to advance public safety, education, youth services, volunteer service, and the arts receive the net proceeds from the event.
Tickets are $10 in advance / $15 at the gate. Children 6 and under are free. Advanced tickets may be purchased online at WAMMfest.com.
