Huntington Music Festival

The Huntington Music & Arts Festival is back for its seventh year, and it's shaping up to be bigger and better than ever!

The celebration of music and the arts is being stretched into 10 amazing events over seven days this year. HMAF will kick off Aug. 29 and will feature at least one event every night through Sept. 4.

The premiere event, the concert at the Ritter Park Amphitheater, will take place Sept. 3 with co-headliners Tyler Childers and Ona. The Horse Traders, William Matheny, Of the Dell, Nick Dittmeier & the Sawdusters, Beggars Clan, Matt Mullins & the Bringdowns, The Jenkins Twins, The Carpenter Ants, Low Seam, Knockin' Spirits and The Settlement are also on the lineup with acoustic sets by
Todd Burge, John R Miller, Tim Lancaster, Jeremy Daniel Roberts, Jeremy Short, John Clay, My Brother The Bear, David Copley, Tim Browning and Corey Shields.

In addition to the jam-packed musical lineup, there will be a beer garden offering up some great regional brews, a Kids Art Corner and, for the first time, the HMAF Bazaar, which will feature up to 40 local vendors in the parking lot selling a variety of goods. This part of the festival is FREE!
