Check out last year’s festival line up or dig even deeper into the archives and you know the 2016 Deep Roots Music Festival is going to be good.

What an amazing Festival weekend … sold out shows, sunny warm days, great vibes all around town … smiles everywhere all weekend! A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who contributed in some way to making this year’s Deep Roots Music Festival such a success. The Festival just couldn’t have happened without all the support received from donors, sponsors, and volunteers. Not to mention all the great musicians and festival supporters filling the chairs and dancing up a storm each night.
We’ll post some pictures real soon.
And in the meantime, don’t forget to make note of the date for next year’s festival (always the last full weekend in September) … September 23, 24, 25, 2016.
