Whispering Beard Folk Festival – New Venue, Same Vibe

Whispering Beard Folk Festival has departed from the beloved campground in Friendship, IN and is setting up shop in the beautiful Smale Riverfront Park in Downtown Cincinnati this Thursday through Saturday! The beardos have created an entire community of acceptance, great music, and comradery every August over the years and this year will be no different. 

Founded in 2008 by Matthew Wabnitz and Katfish Williams with the idea that many of their friends had these amazing bands, so why not put on an outdoor show for all them to play and all of their friends to show up. Their friends showed up. Year after year this festival becomes a bit larger, with this year taking the cake thus far.
