Our vision is to provide the public with a free, family-friendly (and animal-friendly) music festival transplanted from the Appalachian backwoods and dropped smack dab in the middle of a Cleveland intersection. Born from a love of stringband music, and built on the rising tide of outstanding local businesses and generous individuals, the Hingetown Hoedown brings sweet folk, bluegrass & newgrass sounds to the blossoming Hingetown neighborhood in Ohio City. Going beyond creating a great music festival, it is our mission to promote sustainability, showcase local start-ups and businesses, and strengthen the bonds of our community.
With eight amazing main stage bands and four daring Picnic Table Stage bands, craft beer, local food trucks, a variety of vendors, fun family activities, and over 1500 attendees (in the pouring rain, no less), the first Hingetown Hoedown was a roaring success. We’re looking forward to year two in the Fall of 2016, and we’d love for you to be a part of it!
