The Sourland Music Festival began at Hillbilly Hall as a fun event with a few local bands.  Over 15 years, it has evolved into a celebration of the Sourland Mountain region.

“This year’s event aims to educate, entertain and engage participants,” Festival co-chair Suzanne Parsons. “We want to encourage our guests to experience all of the wonderful aspects of our region: learn about the unique history, see and touch the special creatures of the region, exercise on outdoor activities, learn about local nonprofits, meet farmers and pick up groceries at the mini Organic Farmers Market, enjoy food and drink from 10 of the area’s favorite food vendors, and shop at the art, craft and service vendors.”
