Music

Central to the Fest will be the “Grassical Jamboree.” This showcase of grassical music ‒ music that bridges grass roots and classical traditions ‒ will feature both nationally and locally known groups in the unique open-air setting of Witwen’s Tabernacle, built in 1918. Doors open 15 minutes before each concert. Be sure to swing by the Gazebo, too, for free music in the out-of-doors.

New financial support from an anonymous donor has allowed us to discount concert tickets in the Tabernacle! We’re grateful to our funders who help make Fermentation Fest possible and welcoming to many.  Tickets are available at the Welcome Tent.
