Inaugural Mountain Folk and Roots Fest
Published July 25, 2013
It’s always exciting to celebrate something new that’s happening right here in Adams County – and this weekend won’t disappoint.
The first ever Mountain Folk and Roots Fest, brought to you by Jibberjazz Productions, starts tomorrow at the South Mountain Fairgrounds, bringing in over 30 musical acts, performer’s workshops, food and craft vendors and more. Over four stages, the Fest will showcase a wide variety of Americana musical styles — folk, bluegrass, blues, roots, zydeco with artists traveling from all corners of the country.
If you’ve never been to the South Mountain Fairgrounds, you’re in for a treat. It’s a beautiful 45-acre property with indoor and outdoor stages, scads of camping space (if that’s your thing) and a few creeks criss-crossing throughout.
This is definitely a family-friendly festival and the festival promotors have made sure there are lots of activities for the kids while you enjoy a weekend of fantastic national touring (and up-and-coming) music acts. And if your kids are 12 and under, they get in for free!
The window for online and mail-order ticket sales has passed, but the event will not sell-out, so you can purchase your passes at the gate. The weekend pass price of admission is $80 per person.
Cash is the only accepted method of payment at the gate, which will continue to operate non-stop from 9:00AM Friday until sunrise Sunday morning. There is an early-bird fee of $10 for people who arrive Thursday. Beginning at sunrise on Saturday, overnight passes will be available at the gate for $60 each.
