Lima school board considering food and music festival

Proposed event to be held in June at Spartan Stadium

LIMA — A Lima-area caterer wants to organize a food and music festival which would be held at Spartan Stadium in June.

Trevor Remy, with Trevor’s Little Taste presented his idea to the Lima City School Board Thursday night.

“I want to host an event to draw the largest crowds possible for Lima for entertainment, drawing from all different demographics, ways of life and come together, celebrating our town, our city, what better way to do than with food and music,” Remy said.

He wants to hold the Little Taste Music Festival at Spartan Stadium with a target date of June 9 with activities possibly happening on June 8 and 10.

While no big name acts have been lined up, Bootsy Collins, a funk artist, is said to be willing to help.

“I’ve been working with him and his camp on doing, not just a concert in Lima but also working with the youth on producing some sort of music production for the festival and members of his camp coming to Lima and working with the kids throughout the calendar year on projects,” he said.

Remy is hoping to be able to nail down at least three main acts, one to perform each night with area acts performing, leading up to the headliners.

A concert with large crowds might have an adverse effect on the turf at Spartan Stadium, but that is not a big concern.

“We are in the process of getting new turf this summer so this is a great opportunity to see what an event like this what type of an effect it would have on the stadium,” said John Zell, Lima Senior High School athletic director.

The Lima Senior Athletic Department would benefit three ways, from concessions sold inside to the stadium, money brought in by charging for parking and through the rental of the venue itself.

Alcohol is also planned on being served in the Lima Stadium Park area.

The school board has to decide whether to rent out the stadium for such an event, which would be its first.
