“Q-Fest is a weekend of fun and my way of saying thanks to my hometown of Pahokee for the years of support given to me,” says Boldin. “Every year our numbers grow, we have greater support from partners and the community, and we continue to hear feedback where fans consider Q-Fest among the top-rated community events of the year. We’re very proud of that!”
