Shipyard Music Festival returns for its fourth year this weekend on the grounds of the Century Casino Cape Girardeau.

The two-day event, produced by rustmedia, features a full lineup of national touring acts and local musicians who alternate performances between two stages.

The festival begins at 6 p.m. Friday with The Burney Sisters, followed by Mike Renick, Lowdown Brass Band, Arkansauce and Yonder Mountain String Band.

Day 2 will start at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Lineup: Hunter Hathcoat, Wildermiss, Pfunk Dat, Mike Mains & The Branches, Jessie Ritter, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Logan Chapman, Grizfolk, Jeremy Todd, Maggie Rose, Hounds and Samantha Fish.

You can read more about each of these acts in the articles on semissourian.com and shipyardfest.com.

Shipyard, however, is more than good music. It’s a complete experience with great food and drink, old and new friends, interactive sponsorship experiences, and opportunities to give back to important causes.

Tickets can be purchased online at shipyardfest.com. Prices will increase from Friday.

Shipyard is one of Cape Girardeau’s popular events, attracting over 2,000 people in 2021. It’s family-friendly, helps fuel the local economy, and provides a quality experience for people of all ages.

A special thank you to the sponsors, organizers and volunteers who help make this event possible.

We look forward to seeing you at the shipyard this weekend.
