The Turks Head Music Festival is Back and Ready to Rock

Every summer, on and off, since 1970 West Chester has been hosting its very own music festival. The all day concert has the feel of the another area.

After being forced to cancel last year due to COVID-19, Turks Head is back and ready to rock 50 (and 1) years after that first concert in the park.
