Let's Celebrate!

At ROMP, every day is Earth Day! 

As a festival, we strive to give each attendee the best experience possible. This includes keeping the park clean, providing healthy and nourishing food choices, and keeping festival goers hydrated. 

Free water filling stations, organic and farm-fresh food vendors, and recycling from Go Recycling and the Daviess County Parks Department are just a few of the amenities we offer to keep our guests - and the planet - happy!

Beyond the music, ROMP is beloved for its gorgeous setting. Yellow Creek Park is a 150-acre facility famous for its raptor rescue center, winding creek and fishing lake, sweeping tree-lines, nature trails and vast grassy fields. The park is very much a part of the spirit and festival culture that brings thousands to ROMP each year.

We stand with the One Village Music Project

We are proud to stand with #rompfest artist Phoebe Hunt and the One Village Music Project. This cause brings together teen musicians from across the globe to write and create music, bridging cultures and cultivating peace and unity. 

In order to continue, the project needs support from music lovers like you; to sweeten the deal, we have donated a family pass to ROMP for one lucky bidder! Please consider donating to  help fund this project (and in turn score a sweet 4-day festival & camping pass for the whole family!). You could even walk away with a private show from other #rompfest artists like 10 String Symphon, Grisman Leslie Hargreaves Smith, or a private mandolin lessons from Dominick Leslie.
