Silopanna Music Fest

Silopanna Music Fest

Sponsored by The Rams Head Group – they’re we’re all about Food, Fun & Beer.

What started in 1989 as a small, 30-seat pub in Annapolis, Maryland has grown over the last 25 years. And through that growth, our committment to yummy food, craft beer and music has only grown stronger. Much stronger. They book nearly 700 concerts in Maryland (@ramsheadlive, @ramsheadonstage, @piersixpavilion) plus 600+ nights of free, live & local music in our restaurants. Every year. That’s a lot of music.

So in 2011, they thought let’s get crazy and we launched Silopanna Music Festival. Hurricane Irene had other plans for them, and 2011 was Irene-d out. They were back in 2012 and man, that was a wicked time. And here they are in 2014, ready to go again. Silopanna is our daily commitment to Food, Fun & Beer wrapped up into one exceptional day in Annapolis… where it all started in ’89.
