The Ouibache (WEE-buh-SHAY) Music Festival is a celebration of all forms of roots music, traditional and contemporary. We take our name from the river that runs through North-Central Indiana and Tippecanoe County. The indigenous people called this river, Wah-ba-shiek-a, which means "water over the white rock". The French fur traders that traveled this river called it Ouibache. Today, we call it Wabash.
In 2017, several local events and festivals came to an end or went through reorganization. As the planners and organizers of these festivals, we felt a calling to continue bringing great music and educational opportunities to our community. Ouibache was born. Today the planning and preparation continues. The festival will provide opportunities to give back to our community the gift of music. Live performance, educational cooperatives, artist in residence and instrument procurement are all part of what we believe in. It starts here!
