Ossipee Valley Music Festival

Ossipee Valley Fairgrounds 291 S. Hiram Road, Hiram

Ossipee Valley is a music festival in Maine. The festival features four stages, food trucks, craft beer, yoga, barn dances, workshops, kids activities, craft vendors and camping. It is dreamily situated on the banks of the Ossipee river, amongst tall pines and goat barns, in southern Maine, under an hour from Portland or North Conway, and 2.5 hrs NW of Boston. The festival is known for featuring ascendant acts in roots, bluegrass, americana, folk, world, and blues music, but it is about more than just the music: Ossipee Valley is a community where all are welcome. Moon dancers, flatpickers, gangs of kids on bikes, barefoot granolas and retired RV grandmas, wallflowers, instigators, listeners, players, makers and shakers unite under the fresh summer sky. Come join us. Don't forget to join us for the Ossipee Valley String Camp-a 5 day immersive educational experience that comes with a pass to the festival, for seven whole days of musical bliss.
