We are thrilled to officially announce the 2017 event date and talented lineup coming August 26, 2017. And, be sure to sign up for email updates and follow along on Facebook for more exciting updates as they happen!

Greencastle, IN – On Saturday, August 26, 2017, Almost Home Restaurant will again host the one and only “Greencastle Music Fest” on the square in downtown Greencastle, Indiana. The event runs from 3-11pm and includes high energy entertainment starting with a premier band straight from Kentucky, “The Louisville Crashers”.   Their return performance was highly requested by all who saw them last year. They will be bringing their unparalleled energy to the stage one more time.  Also, performing will be “Southern Country” a very popular band from the Indy area.

DJ Eric Michaels will be spinning tunes and keeping the crowd energized throughout the entire event. Michael’s is a popular radio personality from Terre Haute’s HI-99 who can’t wait to take the stage.

New this year is a $5 per person admission. Gail Smith, owner of Almost Home and event creator shared, “While the event has been free in the past, it’s become difficult to bring such high caliber entertainment without significant costs. In our commitment to Greencastle and all they have done for us, a portion of any proceeds will go to Main Street Greencastle to further their goals for the downtown area.”

There will be a corn-hole tournament sponsored by Coors Light along with many other activities for the whole family, including a kids area open until 7pm.

The Louisville Crashers may have a special “band member” joining them on stage at this year’s event. Baby Crasher, now almost a year old, will attend his first Louisville Crashers concert to see the band he was named after, when his Mom was at the event last year.
