Mission: let's do it ourselves
Do It Ourselves is a grassroots event production company that creates unique experiences with music, art, and community - treating each event as an experience that elevates expression, honors the power of collaboration, and brings people together... always with a good cause in mind. Drawing from our homegrown network of talent, we bring in a curated cast of artists and do'ers who always leave the audience buzzing.
A core part of the Do It Ourselves mission is to benefit worthy causes and organizations. Our first endeavor was to use a portion of our proceeds help create a music enrichment program at Camp Krem (the special needs summer camp where we hold DIO Fest each year). As we continue to grow and develop the Do It Ourselves community, we look forward to continuing to support such causes. Learn more about Camp Krem and the work we've done with them here.
Do It Ourselves Presents began as a grassroots 3-day music festival (Do It Ourselves Fest) in the Santa Cruz Mountains that benefitted music enrichment for special needs at event site Camp Krem. Now in it's fifth year, Do It Ourselves Presents is filling a year round event calendar, releasing collaborative art/media projects and building a network of folks around California and beyond, booking premier regional and national acts.
Do It Ourselves was founded by Stevee Stubblefield in 2013 alongside an amazing crew and community of folks who continue to create and recreate the do it ourselves mission each and everyday. So come kick it with us sometime.
