2nd Annual First Settlement Festival

The Adelphia Music Hall will be hosting the second annual First Settlement Festival this Saturday, April 6, 2019. Live music will start at The Adelphia with Micah Kesselring at noon and will carry through nonstop until midnight. Other musicians playing the Adelphia stage include Joshua Lee, Hayfield and Crow, Cutler Station, and OYO. Ona will take the stage at 9 PM and headliner The Blackfoot Gypsies will play from 10:30-midnight. Festival participants can come and go from The Adelphia all day long, which means breaks can be taken to eat lunch at The Galley or shop in the amazing downtown boutique shops that will be open.

There will also be live music throughout downtown at designated “busk stops.” The schedule for this segment of the festival is as follows:

12:00-12:30: Jesse Forrest @ Green Acres

1:00-1:30: Ben Davis Jr. @ Sugar Maple Boutique

The First Settlement Festival has expanded this year thanks to corporate sponsors Marietta Dental Group, Tenney & Associates, and Peoples Bank as well as in-kind sponsors Clayman & Associates and Signality Signs & Graphics.

“We could not be more excited to be hosting this festival for a second consecutive year,” said Nate Shahan, the festival’s founder. “We started this last year as a way to celebrate Marietta’s birthday, and this year it carries extra significance with the pending publication of David McCullough’s book. It’s going to be a great weekend to celebrate and enjoy our historic town.”
