ROCKS Festival of Milton-Freewater

What was once the Muddy Frogwater Festival is now The Rocks Festival. It is still held at Yantis Park in Milton-Freewater. It is also still a fun, family-oriented festival that we will continue to work hard to make a successful event for all. The name honors our Rocks AVA, recently awarded to the unique wine growing area we live in. 

The date will be August 18 - 20, 2017.

Family Fun

The whole family is taken into consideration when planning for the festival: from the Kid Zone to the Art Show and everything in between, there are fun activities, events, contests and games for everyone. Be sure to check back for a complete listing of what's happening!

Admission to the festival is free!

(Please note that some charges may apply for meals, vendor games or contest entries. Meal tickets can be purchased on site.)

Live Entertainment

FREE Admission! 

Good Food, Good Crafts

As visitor's wander through the park, the tantalizing aroma will take you to the food court. Vendors offer an irresistable and varied selection of items. There is no shortage of food: organized breakfasts and dinners are offered on Friday and Saturday by local service clubs/organizations.
