Brite Winter is a music and arts festival held annually in Cleveland, Ohio with the mission of embracing Cleveland's winter "by celebrating with light, fire, art, music, games and snow."[1] Hosting its inaugural event in 2010,[2][3] Brite Winter has since grown to a six-stage, 60-band event.[4] The event hosted 20,000 attendees at its 2015 festival.[4]


The Brite Winter Music & Arts Festival was founded in 2010 by Emily Hornack and Jimmy Harris.[2] Some of the funding for the 2014 festival was acquired through corporate sponsors and a Kickstarter campaign with a $4,000 goal.[2] The 2014 event had over 20,000 attendees.[5]
