About the Ouibache Music Festival
Ouibache is a roots music festival that takes place the last full weekend in September at the beautiful Tippecanoe County Amphitheater in West Lafayette, Indiana. Musicians from all over the world will gather to play tunes, share stories, and commune with one another.
