Shepherdstown Street Fest is a free summer music festival in the small German town of Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Just one hour outside of metropolitan DC, the festival celebrates new and upcoming bands with a ten-hour music extravaganza on June 24th. The festival showcases the largest array of music talent in the VA, WV, MD, and DC featuring well-established bands to a new young artist series that connects fresh talent to bands. A surprise that awaits the visitors is the artisan gallery alley with over seventy plus juried vendors showcasing their wares down German Street.
The bands featured in the street fest are selected based on their popularity. “We pick bands that can draw crowds from different areas with a major emphasis on the popularity of this band in Shepherdstown,” says Bob Keel, President and Main Stage Coordinator. This year’s main stage headliner band is ‘Black Masala’. Black Masala will offer a new sound for the festival. “We do gypsy brass, or rock and brass music, mixed with funk, and New Orleans street band music.” said Mike Ounallah, co-founder and original founder of Black Masala.
There are many wine and music festivals that have craft and artisan vendors. The Shepherdstown Street Fest stands out because of its devotion to the town and the high quality of both musicians and artisan vendors. Since the town is a great place to raise a family, the festival also ranks number one for its Kids’ Camp organized this year by The Light of the Child Montesorri School.
