PaoliFest is a free music, art and film festival in Paoli, Indiana, taking place Friday and Saturday, August 9th-10th. The festival debuted in 2018 with more than 1,300 attendees for a single day event. The 2019 event is expanding to two days, and will be held in JayCee Park in downtown Paoli. Featuring three stages with live performances, an art demo area, food and craft vendors and a youth area, PaoliFest 2019 promises to be an extraordinary weekend of music, art and community.

PaoliFest will include acts from Arizona, New York, Nashville, Cincinnati, Lexington, Louisville and an array of great local musicians, including youth performers, featuring genres from Folk and Bluegrass to Soul, Funk, Gospel, Classical and more. Programming includes workshops in various visual arts disciplines as well as guitar, banjo, violin and other instruments. Other features include an all-day jam tent, community art collaborations, puppet shows and a variety of food and beverage vendors. Demonstrations will take place throughout the day and will include blacksmithing, weaving, mosaics, broom-making, metal pouring and many more. All programming is free.

PaoliFest is a nonprofit festival produced by Let Music Speak, a 501c3 organization dedicated to creating community, empowering youth and addressing community health through the lens of the arts. Let Music Speak is founded on the idea that music and art programming can be transformative for communities, families and individuals, and that everyone should have access to these experiences. They partner with local organizations to present festivals, performances, and creative events. Programs are community and youth-centric, and aim to both celebrate and model the vibrant diversity of the world.
