We have always been a big supporter of the expansion of the MidPoint Music Festival. The things that take place each evening are amazing, but extending the offerings into the afternoons leading up to those highlights only makes the festival more attractive. That’s why we put on a day party a couple years ago, and it’s why we are writing about some day shows again this year.
If you have kids, you know doing MPMF can be tough. You can hit up Washington Park for an early set but usually by 8 or 9pm, your kids are fried. That issue was part of the emphasis behind Findlay Market wanting to expand the festival to their already great, family friendly crowd. Here are some details about the event.
Kicking off on day two of MidPoint, the MPMF Day Show at Findlay Market will host two stages on Market grounds and offer free music from 12 bands, many of whom are playing the festival itself.
The family-friendly event includes programming on two stages: one will be located next to the OTR Biergarten, and a Main Stage on the south side of the market in front of S&J Bakery and Café.
The market’s vendors and restaurants will be open as usual, and Findlay Market encourages attendees to shop and store their groceries in the Veggie Valet, located on Elm Street next to the OTR Biergarten.
