The American Roots Music Festival is an all day, family- friendly event throughout Caramoor’s beautiful performance spaces, gardens and grounds. The Festival offers an eclectic mix of folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, blues, singer/songwriter, traditional and contemporary roots music performed by legendary stars and up-and-coming artists.
In addition to hours of great music, your Day Only ticket includes free and convenient parking, real restrooms, shady viewing areas and a shade tent for daytime shows, spacious green picnic lawns (some with old fashion picnic tables), plenty of space to listen or areas to explore, assorted food and beverages to purchase from our refreshment stand (or bring your own!), and tours of the historic Rosen house.
A great way to spend a summer day!

Please bring a low-profile chair or blanket, as well as food and beverage for yourself or to share. For those of us who can arrive early, we'll set up a spot and do some picnicking on the grass before the music starts.
Let's watch the forecast and be prepared for the weather - I'll check in that week with more information.
Food and Beverages - We can bring our own food and beverage, there is an on-site concession booth, or we can order (by Tuesday, 6/24) from a catered Special Picnic Menu. For more information about Caramoor's offerings, please click here: Food|Caramoor

Here is the schedule of performances - I plan to be set up at noon in Friend's Field (details sent via email), and I plan to check out performances at other locations, but I don't plan to stay all afternoon, although others may. Please plan to arrive early/around noon for best seating location. Due to the large number of us, we'll need to be prepared to spread out a bit -
