Centerville-Washington Township Americana Music Festival
On July 4, 2022, Centerville will host the Centerville-Washington Township Americana Festival, the largest one-day Americana festival in the state of Ohio. The 50th anniversary of the Americana Festival will see more live music, street vendors, and family-friendly experiences than ever before. The festival, which is the largest of its kind in Ohio, has attracted more than 75,000 people each year.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Americana Festival, Centerville will host a parade through the downtown area. Beginning at 10 a.m., the parade will proceed west, south, and west again until it ends at Tuxworth Road. After the parade, the Americana Street Fair will begin and include several family-friendly activities. There will be hundreds of arts and craft booths, food vendors, musical performances, and a kids’ activity and game area.
Telluride Americana Music Festival
Every year, the Telluride Americana Music Festival presents an all-star lineup of singer-songwriters and upcoming musicians. Held on July 14-16, this festival benefits the Sheridan Opera House and provides arts education to the community. During the festival, floor tickets cost $100 plus a $5 ticketing fee, while balcony seats are $70. Balcony seating offers a more intimate setting. Unlike the floor-level seating, balcony seats are all seated.
While the Telluride Americana Music Festival is widely recognized for its legendary lineup of artists, this less-known event is equally enjoyable. Usually held in July, the series showcases singer-songwriters from around the country and combines tradition with contemporary innovation. While you might not expect a Bobbie Gentry or Patsy Cline performance at the Telluride Americana Music Festival 2022, you might be delighted to discover that local favorites like Cross Canadian Ragweed will perform Oklahoma Red Dirt Music.
