Hog Jam music festival is entering its 12th year as an all ages, all genres, family friendly 2 day music festival. It still has very much a backyard BBQ feel, whilst showcasing some of the regions best singer/songwriters, and host to many regional and nationally emerging bands. With activities for children, local food and merchandise vending, camping, and friends, we are the Dayton region’s favorite family music festival.

Thank you Tony Herdman the passion and hard work you put into Hog Jam 10 was noticed from the beginning to the end of this outstanding event. All the incredible talent that graced the stage were nothing but the finest musician collected in one place under a super moon! The volunteers, venders and attendees were so kind!
