This is what Springsfest is all about.  One day a year, in downtown Yellow Springs, we celebrate art and community with the best musical acts in the nation, the best craft breweries in the state, and the very best visual artists all at a very affordable admission price. 

Beginning at 11 in the morning and running until 11 at night, every single minute at Springsfest is packed with entertainment.  The festival also features a handpicked selection of local food vendors, but you are also encouraged to spend sometime exploring our beautiful village. 


Springsfest is an event designed to be fun and accessible for everyone no matter your race, gender, income or family size.  This festival is for everyone.  Have kids?  Don't sweat it, the festival is all ages and children 12 and under are admitted for free.

Music. Beer. Friends. Springsfest


Where To Stay?


There are tons of great local options for overnight accommodations in Yellow Springs, however space is limited and historically has gone pretty quickly.  We recommend making your reservations far in advance to guarantee you can stay at your preferred hotel, Airbnb, or campground.  

For camping, reserve sites at the John Bryan State Park. For hotels, check out the Springs Motel or the Mills Park Hotel.  

Don't forget to check into the local Airbnb options as well!

If lodging in Yellow Springs has been fully booked, we recommend checking out hotels and other options in Fairborn, Springfield, or Xenia. All three are surrounding cities that are within 15 minutes of Yellow Springs.
