About the Festival

June 14-17, 2018

New to the Tri-State
Area: a festival with
4 full days of activities
that brings top-notch
early music performances focused on Renaissance, Baroque and Classic music to Mountain Maryland. Plan to become a local resident for this long weekend and enjoy festival events that highlight not only the unsurpassed music performances but also special historic delights in Cumberland and the surrounding area. Breakout music presentations, art gallery visits, and historical tours will also be folded into these special days in this naturally beautiful and culturally rich region of Maryland.
