A festival for people that love music! Bands & genres that don’t suck. Honky-Tonk, Americana, Roots, Blues, and Rock.

This music festival is an extension of The Happy Trucker Show radio program and live music events hosted in The Happy Productions Listening Room. The mission is to connect music lovers with music makers in an intimate, comfortable, and affordable outdoor venue.
