Festival History

The 2018 First Settlement Festival

The weather was not very accommodating of the inaugural festival, but a lot of musicians and fans made it out nonetheless.

The 2018 First Settlement Festival featured John Kunze Jeff Ray, Tracy Allen, Cradle & Grave, Sour Mash String Band Steve Hussey & Jake Eddy, and The Hopewell. WE were fortunate to host Jake Dunn, Newfeather, and Angela Perley in the evening.

Numerous bands also toured different downtown businesses, busking as they went, including Two Buds & a Slapbox, Matt Petty & The Whiskey Chasers, LMHTB, and more.
