Founded by Ross Swartzendruber, the 10th annual Cherry City Music Festival kicks off on Thursday March 31st, 2016. The festival was founded in 2007 as part of Mid-Valley Video Festival’s Mix-n-Mash. The goal is to bring independent local bands and their fans together for great musical performances and networking opportunities throughout Salem.

CCTV is honored to serve as one of many venues for this event again this year. We will feature a variety of bands in both studios throughout the festival and will telecast the performances live on Comcast channel 22 and on our website. KMUZ will be simulcasting the entire festival on 88.5/100.7 FM. We welcome and encourage a live audience, interaction on social media, and participation through volunteering. There’s no cost to attend the shows at CCTV, and they’re all family-friendly. Visit the other tabs on this page and be sure to join our Facebook event to get all the info about the festival!
