Original Oystergrass, Inc., more commonly known as The Oyster Ridge Music Festival or Oystergrass, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
The mission of the Oyster Ridge Music Festival is to bring arts to a rural community, enhance the quality of life through education and cultural experiences, build partnerships with other entities, and to create a substantial economic impact each year.
Established in 1994, 2019 marks the 25th consecutive year of the Festival. Each year on the final weekend in July, music lovers flock to the small town of Kemmerer to enjoy a completely FREE, world class music festival which would cost them hundreds to attend anywhere else.
Each year it is a struggle to raise the funds necessary to host such an event. However, due to the tremendous support of local agencies, businesses, and individuals coupled with the diligent efforts of our volunteer board of directors and committee, the event always becomes a memorable reality, and a pure grassroots extravaganza,
Winner of the Wyoming Governors Art Award, The Oyster Ridge Music Festival has become a highly recognized and desirable event for high end performing artists and friendly family fun.
