Black Deer Festival is an independent award-winning Americana and Country music festival set in the wild and historic Eridge Park in Kent.
Black Deer Festival showcases more than 70 roots-inspired artists across five unique stages. From unforgettable Main Stage performances to rowdy roof-lifting sets at Haley’s Bar Stage, and heavier blues rock at The Roadhouse Stage to intimate songwriter sessions at The Ridge Stage. Yet it’s not just on the stages where music will live. Live music will be scattered throughout Black Deer’s spectacular outdoor setting.
Always about more than just the music, Black Deer Festival is a family destination with a community spirit. It’s a festival built on a love of the great outdoors, the best in Live Fire and BBQ cooking, the counter-culture of custom built motorcycles and skilled artisans, and all other things authentically Americana.
