From this music festival came passion to create a rich experience for festival goers who have come to expect much more than just a random bunch of bands on a couple stages. “We love cultivating what your experience will feel like as you walk through our gates, thoughtfully selecting live artists, delicious food, beautiful and unique craft booths, and intimate pop-up performances we believe will enhance your experience for our eleventh year.Dan Sheehan, festival Co-Producer
