Downhome Music, Beer, and Arts Festival is an annual event focusing on everything local: Music, Food, Art, and Brews! The event takes place on the first Saturday of August annually and focuses on everything embodied by the name Downhome. The music portion of the festival is about showcasing all "organically grown original live music" from the best of our local musicians. They are all playing for the entry fee, so come out and support their tireless efforts to entertain you all year round. The festival will also feature an artist area showcasing the best of our local artist community. Come out and take home a piece of local art and support the beautification of your city by these talented individuals.
The food is provided by the locally owned eateries Sebastian's Hideout / Lake Pointe Grill, Floyd's Anex and Eatery, and a local barbecue champion! Come enjoy the tastes of Downtown Springfield while enjoying the festival. The beer portion of the festival will be made up of ALL the local distributors and their selections of American Craft Brews, while also adding in our local breweries Obed and Isaac's and Rolling Meadows Brewery.
This is the first event of its kind in Springfield, at no other time have all these distributors and brewers been brought under one tent to offer their selections while being able to enjoy the best of Springfield's food, art, and music. We at the Celtic Mist Pub and Brewhaus, as well as everyone else affiliated with the event invite you out to join us in celebrating everything Springfield at The Second Annual Downhome Music Festival.
