Festival at Sandpoint draws record crowds

Thousands of people grabbed their lawn chairs and coolers on Thursday, well prepared for the 37th annual Festival at Sandpoint.

Eight nights of music under the stars kicked off on the shores of Lake Pend Orielle as crowds filled Memorial Field.

“It’s awesome,” said Terra Phelps, a concert attendee. “I love being outside and all the people. The food’s super good.”

Whether you like jazz or pop, the Festival at Sandpoint offers a little bit of something for everyone and features new and well-known artists. Not to mention food trucks from local vendors.

The festival’s director says she’s already planning for next year.
