About Us

The Ben Meyer Foundation, which puts on Acadia Music Fest each year, was organized after the untimely 2001 death of Nicholls student Ben Meyer, who passed away at age 23 following an auto accident.
The Acadia Music Fest acts as the Ben Meyer Foundation’s primary fundraising event, whose proceeds benefit a rotating lineup of charities chosen by its board each year. Board member and president Tommy Meyer says their charity selection process each year is largely guided by the values of their organization’s namesake, Ben Meyer.
