October 4-6, 2019.

And thanks to our supporters, this amazing weekend of music is absolutely free to attend. The internationally acclaimed Folk-Americana band The Way Down Wanderers will headline the 2019 Ol’ Front Porch Music Festival.

“Credit The Way Down Wanderers with giving a nod toward tradition and having the gumption to break the mold. While they take their cues from bluegrass and other Americana influences, the melodies that dominate this self-titled effort vary substantially rather than being bound to any one style specifically.” – Relix Magazine

In addition to The Way Down Wanderers, the lineup for the 2019 Ol’ Front Porch Music Festival includes Hank, Pattie & The Current, Chatham Rabbits, River Ratz, Hooverville, Cane Mill Road and more.

The festival kicks off Friday Oct 4, running from 2-8:30pm, Saturday 10am-8:30pm, Sunday 8:30-10am.
