The sensational and sustainable 11th annual Hoxeyville Music Festival will take place this weekend, August 15th-17th, 2014.  This year’s Hoxeyville is a return to the humble reminder of the home team for free flowing verse and truth among the northern Michigan forest trees and Pine River.  After 10 years on, the festival organizers took off a year to reflect and re-gather the fest’s mission and values.  They have returned for 2014 with a refined mind and a refreshed line-up.  Gra
