Moonlight Festival

October 16

Lacy MoonlightPreview 2000

Downtown Somerset’s signature fall event is back Saturday, Oct. 16, mixing the sounds of southern soul, gospel blues, American country and bluegrass with the flavors of Kentucky and the colors of local art.

The third annual Moonlight Festival will kick off at 11 a.m. at Fountain Square in the heart of downtown Somerset.

Downtown streets will be lined with a robust slate of food and spirit vendors while a full day of musical talent is planned on the Fountain Square stage, capped off with performances from soul singer-songwriter Devon Gilfillian and country music star Matt Stell.

Local vocalist and student Cassie York will start the day’s performances at 11 a.m., followed by local musician Spooky Fox, bluegrass gospel duo Heidi & Ryan, and acclaimed Americana group The Barefoot Movement.

Moonlight Festival is sponsored by Somerset’s future distillery, Horse Soldier Bourbon, which will be on hand once again to serve the festival’s signature drink — SomerCider. Spirits will also be available, complementing a food truck line-up that includes everything from Mexican to barbecue, Italian cuisine to gelato. Patrons must purchase a $5 wristband to buy spirits at the festival.
