Shoe Fest 2016 Happening This Weekend!

Chicago five-piece Old Shoe will host the sixth annual installment of Shoe Fest over Labor Day weekend at Camp Shaw-Waw-Nas-See in Manteno, IL. The band started the tradition of hosting their fans and musical friends back in 2011 and have grown it into a full on festival that remains true to its roots with a family feeling.
 
Old Shoe will play two nights and will also host the Shoe String Jam to close out the festival on Sunday.  Keller Williams & More Than a Little and Jerry Douglas Band headline this year's fest.  They are joined by Artist at Large: Jeremy Garrett of The Infamous Stringdusters, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Danny Barnes, Henhouse Prowlers, Mr. Blotto, Chicago Farmer, Whiskey Shivers, Way Down Wanderers, EGi. and more. 
 
Tickets for Shoe Fest are on sale now via the event’s website
 
In addition to a weekend packed full of great music, Shoe Fest’s location of Camp Shaw-Waw-Nas-See offers some of the most pristine natural beauty in Illinois. The crystal clear Rock Creek with fishing and waterfalls, 100 acres of pine and oak forest and hiking trails, cabins, permanent showers and bathrooms are just a few of Camp Shaw’s amenities.
 
The festival will also feature family camping areas and on-site family and kid activities to start each day.
 
Here is a video highlight reel from last year’s festival.
