Orton Park Fest Aug 25th-28th

The 41st Annual Orton Park Festival is fast approaching! We are excited to present even more fantastic local talent, as well as some incredibly talented touring groups. 

As usual, we will kick things off on Thursday evening with Family Night, featuring pizza, ice cream, and the flying trapezes of Cycropia Aerial Dance. 

The Main Stage sounds off on Friday night with fun tunes for all ages from The Kissers and The Big Payback!

Saturday will bring a host of performances varying greatly in style from Americana to world rhythms to full out rock and roll. Be sure to check out solid dance beats from Ggoolldd and blistering garage-pop tunes from Twin Peaks!

Sunday morning, as is tradition, we’ll have brunch under the oaks at 9am, accompanied by the up and coming local talent of Soulmen. The Main Stage will again gear up at noon and carry us through the afternoon with some hazy Americana highlighted by the beautiful vocalist Sarah Voz of Dead Horses. Fringe Character is sure to raise the roof, followed by Blooshot Records’ amazing ensemble Ha Ha Tonka.

Portions of this event will be simulcast by WORT (audio).  Check our Facebook page for updates.

Don’t forget to bid on some great auction items! As always, the event is FREE – but please, no dogs or carry-ins.
