The Homegrown Music Festival exclusively features Wisconsin bands, artists and songwriters, hence the name “Homegrown.” Each year, the festival lineup is carefully curated from upwards of 100 submissions. Past performers include Nickel & Rose, Zach Pietrini, Jay Matthes and I’m Not a Pilot.
The festival is a branch of the Hometown Foundation, a 501 c3 that supports arts and cultural institutions in the Kettle Moraine area.
In addition to the bands, Homegrown has become known for corn roasts, food carts, and small batch beer from Cedarburg’s Fermentorium Brewery. The fest is powered by donations from local businesses. Bands still get paid, and proceeds are still helping support the History Center of Washington County.
