The Ossipee Valley Music Festival

If you missed this marvelous festival last year, you’ll want to get it on your calendar right away. Here’s your reminder to get on their mailing list or like their Facebook page so you can catch this marvelous festival this summer. It’s July 28 – 31 for 2016.

You can go for one day or for all four and even camp at the festival. It’s just an hour away, over in Hiram, Maine. We took our RV to get the full musical saturation. The camping was $10 a day for electricity and water. You pay for the festival separately. Our camp site was close enough to the main stage, that we could sit under our awning in our deck chairs and hear the music just fine.

There were several smaller, more-intimate stages, but this was the Maine Stage for the bigger performers.

The music is folk, bluegrass, world music, or variations on all of those. I’m especially a fan of Celtic music and there were several sets of that. There are dances almost every evening.

If the sound of a fiddle starts your toe to tapping and a string band brings a smile to your face, don’t miss this music festival. Grab some folding lawn chairs or a blanket and go. There’s plenty of festival food booths or you can take a picnic with you.
