Following the sudden passing of Jim Wilder in early December, long time promoter of the Milan and Charlotte festivals in the Great Lakes area, the Wilder family has announced that they will no longer participate in the management of these two events.
The Milan festival will continue in August, but under the management of the owner of the campground where it is held.
At this point, the status of the June festival in Charlotte is uncertain, with the family looking for a promoter to take charge of this well-established show. 2013 would be the 41st year in Charlotte if it can be salvaged.
The Wilder family asks that anyone with an interest in taking over in Charlotte please contact them by email.
