Here’s a bit more about the Water Hill Music Festival:

On the first Sunday in May around 100 residents/bands of Water Hill, Ann Arbor, Michigan perform on their porches while visitors stroll from house to house.

Water Hill Music Fest is a genuine neighborhood experience, purely about neighbors sharing homemade music with passersby. You will not find a food court or beer garden, or many ways at all to spend money. So eat a good lunch, fill a water bottle and set off to explore.

Festival yard signs will be planted in front yards all over the hill indicating sites where resident musicians will be performing on their own front porches or yards. Roaming volunteers will be handing out printed programs with maps.

Some musicians will have set chairs on their lawns, but carrying a lightweight folding chair or camp stool might be a good idea.

We hope you’ll join us!
