Knox Farm State Park is one of the most scenic spots in NYS. So, hosting a grassroots two-day music and art festival here is genius. Come end of September, 20+ bands will be sharing their talent with festival-goers. The lineup is legit, and plenty of local eats and craft brews to try.

You can expect performances by both national and regional Americana and roots artists. Headlining the festival are New Orleans-based septet The Revivalists; Montreal rock and rollers of Sam Roberts Band; and Rock Hall of Famer John Oates and The Good Road Band. The talent continues with all the supporting artists scheduled to play.
