Pegasus Farm provides the opportunity to both grow our Shadefest family and retain the unique spirit of camaraderie the festival has come to be known for.
Pegasus, in addition to being a wonderful festival backdrop, will improve the overall Shadefest experience for a few reasons:
1. Enhanced Amenities: Our venue offers us two stages this year, so there will be less time changing stages! In addition, there are showers, RV hookups, and even a small fishing pond and creek.
2. Additional Space: We’re looking forward to inviting newcomers to Shadefest 2018 while providing additional space for our Shadefest vets!
3. We will have later curfews this year, so you can enjoy our late night acts well into the night.
4. Part of Shadefest’s identity is a natural beauty, and that tradition will carry on into our 2018 event. Pegasus Farm is nestled in the Allegheny Mountains and completely surrounded by nature. This year’s remote setting will make Shadefest 2018 a true escape.
The Shadefest team could not be more excited to present Shadefest 2018, our best event to date!
