2018 "In Harmony" ​
Heritage Music Festival

18 hours of food & drink & music performed in an
1805 barn and an 1825 Mennonite Meeting House
Just 30 miles, and 200 years, from the big city
2018 "In Harmony" Heritage Music Festival
Friday, July 20 - Saturday, July 21

Vision of long-term Board President, John Ruch
The festival was made possible through a generous anonymous grant in honor of John Ruch, who served as president of Historic Harmony from 1984 to 1990 and again for more than 20 years beginning in 1995 when he worked tirelessly to preserve the culture and heritage of the Harmonists, a German separatists group that founded Harmony in 1804.

This festival is to realize John’s vision to promote the extensive  musical heritage of the Harmonists, using the beautiful historic venues he helped to preserve in and around Harmony’s National Landmark District.
