Dates and Times


Whispering Beard offers a return to what made music festivals of yesteryear radically fun and lovable. Grown in a little town called Friendship, IN the Beard provides sanctuary for the scruffy, feels more like a family reunion than a ticketed event, and delivers fantastic sights and sounds for three days in August.
National acts that performed at the 2019 Whispering Beard Folk Festival included M. Ward, Ryan Bingham, The Felice Brothers, Peter Rowan, Lost Dog Street Band, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Charlie Parr, Chicago Farmer, Possessed by Paul James and The Wild Reeds.
Featured vendors for the event will be Fretboard Brewery out of Blue Ash, Eli’s BBQ, Revolution OTR, Deeper Roots Coffee and many more. Local fare meets local and national music to create a perfect blend of attractions on the Ohio River.
