2021 Leilapalooza

The 11th Annual Leilapalooza Music Festival. July 29, 3o, 31 2021

In our 11th year! Leilapalooza is a multi-genre music festival the last weekend in July focused on local, regional and national music acts. Brought to you by the BCMAMS. This year, to accommodate Covid maximum occupancy rules, we have limited down to one stage, and spread out our bands and musicians over a 3-day event. Each day will have a slightly different genre focus, to ensure everyone can see the bands they love on the same day. However, to get the full Leilapalooza experience, we encourage you to come out all 3 days. This will be a FREE event that is open to the public. Parking is $10. This small parking fee helps contribute to the Leila Arboretum Society, and to ensure future events like this can continu

Leilapalooza is a fund raising event for the Leila Arboretum Society in Battle Creek Michigan on the last weekend in July. Looking for something fun to do in Battle Creek this summer?

*Absolutely NO outside food, coolers, or beverages allowed on festival grounds.
*In light of Covid we are still practicing social distancing and rules are subject to change depending on CDC regulations.
