The Ticked Off Music Fest is a benefit concert series dedicated to the prevention, awareness and patient support of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses that have become the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the country – spreading six times faster than HIV/AIDS.
Launched in 2013, The Ticked Off Music Fest is the only ongoing music event solely focused on Lyme disease education, awareness and fundraising that travels to trouble spots around the country.
The series is designed to hold events in different regions where tick-borne disease awareness is low but incidence of infection is high.
The goal of the concert series is to drive awareness, give tips on prevention, and to educate on the many symptoms of the diseases. It is to also raise funds for a Lyme patient fund developed by our sister organization, Ticked Off Foundation Inc., a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, EIN: 47-4783824. This fund gives support to patients in financial, physical, and emotional crisis.
Since its inception, the Ticked Off Music Fest has partnered with respected Lyme disease support groups, organizers and sponsors to host events in Wilmington, DE, Jacksonville, FL, Annapolis, MD, Los Angeles, CA, Honolulu, HI, Woolwich, ME and Richmond, VA.
