Founded by Ross Swartzendruber, the 11th annual Cherry City Music Festival kicks off on Thursday June 15th, 2017. 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. 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.
