SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The town of Shepherdstown wants the community to “take to the streets” Saturday June 24th.

Shepherdstown StreetFest is billed as  “a day-long celebration of community featuring live music, arts and craft vendors, kids camp activities, and some of the region’s best live bands.”

The event is designed for audiences of all ages.

In addition to Shepherdstown shops and restaurants, there will be  more than 70 artisan booths, a kid’s camp, and nine diverse musical performances on two stages.

The event is held on German and King Streets in the heart of West Virginia’s oldest town. Ample parking is available in Shepherd University lots and a free continuous EPTA shuttle will run all day from campus lots from 11 am to 8:30 pm. Visit to find an interactive map of the event and information on parking.

An announcement from organizers lays out some of the details:

This year live musical performances will rotate between two stages from Noon until 8:30 pm. Thanks to the generous support of Jefferson Security Bank, the Mainstage on King Street in front of Town Hall will feature a diverse range of artists including free range mountain sirens The Fly Birds, romping country-grass heroes Low Water Bridge Band (sponsored by Panhandle Legal), New Orleans-style soul with a District flavor from Crush Funk Brass, Shepherd alum indie-rock darlings Rozwell Kid, and the Jo-Go Project, a DC-based award-winning jazz and Go-Go fusion band led by Chuck Brown alum Elijah Jamal Balbed

The Library Stage, sponsored by Skinner Law Firm, will be set up behind the Market House in the food court and beer garden area and will showcase the talents of Piedmont blues artist Paul the Resonator, Jefferson High School jazz darlings Chunky Lops, piano virtuoso and TikTok superstar Jordan Siwek, and perennial Shepherdstown favorites The Gypsy Ramblers.

Shepherdstown StreetFest is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to showcasing our region and the many talented people who live in it while raising much-needed funds for two local charities each year. This year’s beneficiaries will be Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department and Stars that Shine, a regional organization that offers empowerment programs and support for Girls ages 12-20 in the Eastern Panhandle of WV.

“Shepherdstown StreetFest relies heavily on the support of sponsors to make this free event possible. In addition to Jefferson Security Bank and Skinner Law Firm, Jefferson Distributing Company, The Jefferson County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Panhandle Legal, United Healthcare Medicare Solutions, Eastern Panhandle Transit Authority, Threadz, Shepherd University, and OLL CPAs have all provided significant support to make StreetFest a success,” according to the announcement.
