Now in its thirteenth year, the Keene Music Festival is a unique event in the New England area. Featuring over eighty bands at thirteen performance areas, the Keene Music Festival is one of the largest free music festivals around. The event features a wide array of musical styles, allowing the audience to walk around the downtown Keene area and listen to a wide variety of musical styles. It is truly a special day of music in a special town.
The Keene Music Festival is an all volunteer effort; with all of the organizing staff, performers and local merchants contributing to create the event. Performers are a mix of local and regional performers; both up and coming artists and "alumni" acts who enjoy coming back to be part of the event. The actual Keene Music Festival occurs every Labor Day weekend, and makes a wonderful way to end the summer season.
