Music Festival Al Fresco

. May 1, 2015.

Sunday, May 3

The Water Hill Music Festival might be more Ann Arbor than the University of Michigan football team eating Zingerman’s reubens while searching for fairy doors. This unsponsored, hyper-local event, in its 5th year, follows one rule: at least one member of each performing band must reside in the Water Hill neighborhood—bounded by Miller Ave., Brooks St., Sunset Rd., and the railroad tracks to the north. On lawns and front porches, inside garages and living rooms, bands, choruses, duos, and solo acts play tuneful ditties beside handmade band signs so passerby know who they’re listening to.

2-6pm, Sunday, May 3. Rain date: Sunday, May 10. Free.
