Leavenworth, WA - What do you get when you mix Vienna, Bavaria and the Wild Wild West?  The Wild & Scenic Musice Fest at Icicle Creek in Leavenworth, WA!

Vienna, the capital and largest city of Austria is regarded as the City of Music because of its musical legac and is also known as the  "The City of Dreams" because it was home to the world's first psycho-analyst - Sigmund Freud.

Bavaria is one of the oldest states of Europe and  the largest state by area, forming almost 20% of the total land area of Germany and  shares international borders with Austria, the Czech Republic as well as with Switzerland. Because all of these countries are part of the Schengen Area, the border is completely open. Two major rivers flow through the state, the Danube and the Main. The Bavarian Alps define the border with Austria and within the range is the highest peak in Germany, the Zugspitze. The Bavarian Forest and the Bohemian Forest form the vast majority 

of the frontier with the Czech Republic and   Bohemia. The major cities in Bavaria are Munich , Nuremberg , Augsburg, Regensburg, Würzburg, Ingolstadt, Fürth and Erlangen.

 .Now, Icicle Creek for the Arts, a  Destination for Extraordinary Performances & Inspired Learning Experiences Dedicated to celebrating excellence in the lively arts and inspiring generations of students, artists and audiences through exceptional educational 

experiences, live performances, and special events - all in the breathtaking, natural setting of the mountain meadows is hosting the Wild & Scenic Music Fest. 

The festival offers a beautiful escape into the mountains and meadows of the Icicle Creek region Friday, August 24th & Saturday, August 25th, 7409 Icicle Road, Leavenworth

The line-up features an eclectic mix of incredible musicians and styles, including: Caleb Klauder Country Band (new school honky tonk), Danny Barnes (banjo madness), Creeping Time (a mix of bluegrass and modern rocket science), Spare Rib and the Blue Grass Sauce (groove grass), Pickled Okra (americana), The Local Strangers (indie folk), Buzz Brump (vibe funk), The Onlies (traditional groove), and Hot Cider String band (fiddle and folk).

Leavenworth, a city in Chelan County, Washington, is modelled on a Bavarian village. In November 2007 Good Morning America went to Leavenworth for Holiday Gifts for the Globe where GMA helped light up the town for the Christmas Holiday. Leavenworth was also named the Ultimate HolidayTown USA by A&E.
