about us

Water City Racket Fest III is a 3-day original music festival February 27-29, 2020 featuring 22 bands rocking the Great Music Hall at O’Marro’s Public House.

Racket Fest 2020 will offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience 30 years of Oshkosh’s rock ‘n’ roll scene, with a careful selection of reunion sets taking the stage for what could be their final performance. Joining our reunion sets will be some of the finest in Midwest original rock.

We are excited to again partner in 2020 with the Oshkosh Public Library and Oshkosh Saturday Farmer’s Market for a full Saturday morning of Racket Fest original music.

Event sponsorship include O’Marro’s Public House and Highholder Brewing Co, Carbon Rose Guitars, The Oshkosh Independent and Oshkosh Music, The Oshkosh Public Library, The Oshkosh Farmers Market, Offbeat Press, The Exclusive Company, Surfin’ Bird Skate Shop, Code Zero Radio, Fusia Media, and the Oshkosh Convention & Visitor’s Bureau.
