To conclude the weekend, Sol Sunday presents a time of remembrance during a memorial show. “Sol, meaning sun, originates from our dear friend Quentin ‘Sol’ Rupp, who passed away in a tragic car accident at 26 years old,” says Sol Fest. After this loss, the festival was created as a sanctuary. Anyone attending Sol Fest can submit photos of loved ones for Sol Sunday by clicking here.
