“Budweiser Made In America,” the JAY Z curated two-day music festival and staple of Labor Day Weekend, returns to Philadelphia for a fifth season. The festival’s Rocky, Liberty and Tidal stages will be live streamed in their entirety on TIDAL.
This concert will benefit United Ways in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Berks County, PA. A primary goal of this music festival is to have a positive impact on the communities involved. As a result of this concert, the money invested into these communities will positively impact the education, income and health of the most vulnerable citizens in these regions. As a result of this year’s Budweiser Made in America festival, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey will invest $300,000 into initiatives that enhance cradle-to-career education that ensures all students graduate high school college- or career-ready, and that equip individuals with the job skills and training they need to secure work that provides a family-sustaining income. The festival will also enable United Way of Berks County to invest an additional $100,000 in local programs and initiatives centered on early grade reading proficiency, as well as efforts targeting the focus areas of education, financial stability, health and safety net services. Each year, more than 100,000 Berks Countians receive help through over 50 funded United Way of Berks County programs, initiatives and grants.
