DUBLIN, OHIO - The Memorial Tournament presented by Workday and Crawford Hoying announced today that Bridge Park – the walkable, mixed-use community in downtown Dublin – will continue to serve as the Tournament’s official offsite destination in 2024.

“Since Fore!Fest began in 2018, this special community event has quickly grown into a fan favorite for golf and music enthusiasts alike,” said Memorial Tournament Executive Director Dan Sullivan. “The Memorial values its partnership with Crawford Hoying and is proud to continue supporting the Bridge Park district and Fore!Fest—featuring something for everyone, including live music, food and beverage options, restaurants and shops, and the Memorial Golf Shop at Bridge Park.”

Bridge Park will offer live entertainment, promotional activation across the district, as well as restaurant and bar specials leading up to the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday and culminating with Fore!Fest brought to you by Rise Brands.

Fore!Fest is a street and music festival that is free to the public and will take place from 5-10 p.m. on Friday (June 7) and Saturday (June 8). Portions of Longshore Street and Bridge Park Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic for the entirety of the event allowing for pedestrian-focused open streets. Each day of Fore!Fest will feature different regional music and entertainment acts, an interactive game area with a golf simulator, paint by numbers, giant Jenga, Connect Four and more, as well as food and beverage offerings for sale from Bridge Park restaurants and local food trucks. The event is rain or shine. The Fore!Fest lineup includes: 

Friday, June 7 | 5–10PM

  • Ian Harrison
  • Trae Myers
  • Josh Melton
  • DJ Q

Saturday, June 8 | 5–10PM

  • Devin Henry
  • Lakeview
  • North to Nashville

 All Fore!Fest proceeds benefit the Crawford Hoying Foundation, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation. Attendees can donate onsite at the event through a QR Code and select Bridge Park businesses will offer specialty drinks with a portion of all sales going back to the event’s beneficiaries.

New to Fore!Fest this year, visitors can donate to the beneficiaries by purchasing Getaway Brewing ’s exclusive Fore!Fest golden pale ale on tap at select bars and restaurants throughout Bridge Park on both sides of The Dublin Link. Attendees can also purchase a drink and koozie combo for $10 with 100% of proceeds from koozie sales being donated to this year’s beneficiaries.

Additional Fore!Fest details can be found at www.forefest.com.

"We're excited to bring the community together during this amazing event, put on in partnership with the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday and City of Dublin," said Brent Crawford, principal and founder of Crawford Hoying, owner/developer of Bridge Park. “Golf patrons and visitors will get to enjoy an even more incredible event this year, with an all-star country lineup, fun programming, retail vendors, food/drink stations and more.”

In addition to partnering with Bridge Park to bring Fore!Fest to Tournament fans, the Memorial also offers an official Tournament Golf Shop location at Bridge Park at 6781 Longshore Street. This full-service retail store is open to the public on Farmer’s Market Saturdays in May and during Memorial Tournament week from Sunday, June 2 through Sunday, June 9 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Golf Shop features official Memorial Tournament gear, including hats, shirts, hoodies, pin flags, accessories, golf chairs, seat cushions, drinkware and more. The public also can purchase Tournament badges at the Bridge Park Golf Shop and the Memorial’s 2024 Limited-Edition Bear (plush stuffed animal), with proceeds benefiting the Memorial Tournament Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Nationwide Children’s and local programs that align with the missions of the Hospital and Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation through an alliance with the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation.
