5 Things to know about the Hurricane Party Music Fest

Hurricane season officially starts on June 1, and for the 15th year the City of Sanford is throwing a storm-ready party.

  1. The Hurricane Party Music Festival 2022 is headquartered at the West End Trading Company in historic Downtown Sanford.

  2. Dominic Maresco is the new venue manager. So, for the first time, he’s responsible for booking the talent. “Most of them are bands I’ve been on tour with the past 15 years,” he smiles.

  3. Dominic is an accomplished musician, too. In fact, he’s used to being on tour nearly 200 days a year with his band, The Supervillains. He’s the drummer and backing vocalist.

  4. Having been in the music industry a few decades, he’s using his connections to help throw a 14-hour party to pay homage to Mother Nature (and hoping for a tranquil hurricane season.)

  5. There are nearly 40 bands on 7 stages this year. The Hurricane Party is Saturday, May 28, 2022 from 12 p.m. – 2 a.m. Day of admission tickets are $45.
