We are no longer called The Dawg Daze of Summer Festival. We have become a series of FREE music events and fundraisers simply called "Dawg Daze" which will be conducted in the near future by a new private Social Club called the "Midwest Music Social Club".  To attend these events a person will need to be a member of the club.

This title doesn't have, nor has it ever had, anything to do with Dogs nor does it have anything to do with Days on a calendar.

- Definitions -

1. A word used to replace the name of a close acquaintance or friend.

1. To stupefy or bewilder.
2. A lost state of mind that might eventually go away. Sometimes considered enjoyable and makes time pass quickly. Not a care in the world.
