A Little Background on the Milford Music Festival
The Milford Music Festival was first established in 2002 as the Milford Jazz Festival but has since expanded. Visitors are now just as likely to find blues, rock, and pop playing along with traditional jazz. Music isn’t the only thing on display during the Milford Music Festival. Local restaurants, artisans, and shops will set up on the streets of Milford, and often run specials for festival-goers. They even sometimes host their own party! Local non-profit organizations are also featured during the festival.
The festival’s goal is to bring the community together and showing visitors the best that Milford has to offer. As the organizers say, they want to “encourage the work of new and emerging local talent, elevate Milford’s status as a cultural destination and enhance the quality of life in Pike County.”
