Saturday Moved to Friday

Saturday’s schedule is cancelled, but on Friday NO HUGS will move their set a day earlier at 6pm, and some music by DJ Seth will take the stage.


Halloween 2018 is Oh so Close!

Halloween is always a breath away in Salem – usually ready to take your breath away. The Fountain Stage is in its 19th year of live local music on the streets of Salem. This year it will be surrounded by Dream Interpreters and Healing Booths with friends from nearby and around the nation. Please check out our calendar of music events to coordinate your visit to our hauntingly beautiful city with the music and entertainment you enjoy best.

October 6-7 is Black and Blues Weekend with Rock and Blues acts organized by Ronnie Deschenes
October 13-14 is String Me Up weekend with local acoustic singer/songwriters led by Paul Duffy
October 26-28 is The Electric Ghost, a dance and Electronica/DJ weekend with all kinds of spooky fun.

This is an all volunteer local stage, and if you would like to help support the cause, please see our support links in the right hand column.

Looking Back on 2017

Fountain Stage 2017:
5 weekends of live music and Halloween Day

  • 64 acts and over 75 hours of music

4 Weekends of Free Encounter Experiences

•  50 hours of experience with almost 200 trained Dream Interpreters, Artists, and from about 20 states and 4 countries

As an all volunteer event, The Fountain Stage did it all on a budget of just under $5,000: Lights, sound, and most of the staging are all donated. All volunteer labor and performance. Small stipends went to three people covering basic costs of travel and supplies.

We had 10 local sponsors including restaurants, and community services, and 3 sponsors from other states. Thank you to all who helped make this happen!

Late Night Silent Disco is Happening at the Fountain Stage Saturday, October 28,9:30 to 11:30pm. Rebel Sound System will bring the House Sounds for the evening of fun. You can purchase tickets for this amazing event at the Fountain Stage the evening of the Silent Disco.

Bring some friends. Get dressed up. Dance into the night.
