2018 ROMP Fest – International Bluegrass Music Museum – Owensboro, KY
Join us June 27th – 30th at Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro, Kentucky for the 15th Annual ROMP Music Festival
Jagoe Homes is proud to announce that we are the 2018 ROMP Fest Official After Party Sponsor! ROMP is a 4-Day music festival will return to Owensboro’s Yellow Creek Park led by iconic artist, Alison Krauss, bluegrass and country music legend, Ricky Skaggs, the ‘Father of Newgrass,’ Sam Bush, and Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame member, Doyle Lawson. Additional acts include Rhiannon Giddens, We Banjo 3, and Billy Strings.
Daviess County’s Yellow Creek Park, a 150-acre facility famous for its nature trails, winding creek and fishing lake, and sweeping tree-lines, plays host to ROMP each year. A full line-up of artist-led instrument workshops takes place throughout the day, as ROMP artists interact with fans and players of all ages and skill levels. Other workshops and forums include songwriting, clogging and flat-foot dancing, yoga (all levels), and bluegrass jamming 101.
Additional offerings at ROMP Festival include organic and farm-to-table food vendors, craft vendors featuring Kentucky Proud products, art installations and professionally-led children’s activities.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their instruments and jam throughout the weekend, as well as dance the night away at the late night stage, featuring nationally acclaimed acts in the park’s rustic Pioneer Village, the setting for the Jagoe Homes After Party!
Be sure that you stop by the big, red Jagoe Homes Canopy across from the Main Stage to register for your chance to WIN a hammock! You can also grab some shade if you need a rest, or a koozie to keep your drink cool. If your looking for competitive rates or more financing options, visit with our preferred lender FBC Mortgage!
We are the Official After Party Sponsor! #CrossTheCreek
During the festival Americana dance bands will be lighting up the night with a hybrid of bluegrass and dance music from the front porch of the iconic cabin in Pioneer Village. If you are willing and able to withstand hours of dancing and smiling, then you need to be at the All-Night After-Parties! Join us at Pioneer Village, which is only a short walking distance from the main stage. Your general admission tickets include access to the After Parties! #CrossTheCreek
Keep up with all of the fun during the festival even when you’re on the move! Download the ROMP App on your smartphone:
