Hartbeat Music Festival

Don’t miss our free, family-friendly celebration of music and community features local and regional bands on three stages, music-making activities, food, beer, and more. This year’s festival will be even bigger and better – it’s been expanded to two days with bands performing Friday, 5 – 9 pm and Saturday, 10:30 am – 9 pm.

More details about activities, stages and the schedule will be announced in July, but (drumroll, please) we’re excited to announce this year’s lineup!
