Dry Creek Music And Arts Festival Releases Line-Up, Schedule Of Events

Big Draft Brewing Main Stage and Beer Garden

The weekend of June 17-18, come celebrate the rebirth of White  Sulphur Springs with a music and arts festival on Main Street. A joint production between Cross  Creek Hospitality, 50 East, The Schoolhouse Hotel, and White Sulphur Springs Rotary, the weekend  will include live music, art, local food, spirits, and brews, and activities for the kids. 

We gather to celebrate the incredible post-flood rejuvenation of White Sulphur Springs. This rebirth  is the shining example of what can be accomplished with cross-sector collaboration. With  businesses, local government officials, philanthropists, and volunteers all working towards a  common goal, the community has been transformed. 

The weekend festival includes concerts and events as follows:
