Drew's music is the soundtrack to life, be it a rowdy Friday night or a peaceful Sunday morning. His songs and performances transport listeners to their favorite memories all while making new ones.

It will be a Shale-abration of our Natural Resources and Homegrown Energy Production in the Heart of the Utica Shale. Community and Education are the driving forces behind the festival. Our hope is that every attendee will come away with a better understanding of the industry and energy production, distribution and usage.  It is also a chance for the industry to meet and greet each other and network!


Businesses of every type have been effected by this industry, and they all are invited to participate! For Exhibit booth space, click here or contact the Chamber office.

The inaugural event last year drew 1,300 attendees in the pouring rain.  We anticipate a much larger crowd, and much better weather!  Many THANKS to our 2014 Sponsors - we hope to see you at the 2015 Friends and Family Fest! 


"It is the our hope to bring the community and the oil & gas companies together for increased understanding and knowledge of the oil & gas industry."  Chamber Preseident, Jo Sexton
