About us


First launched in 2017, the Mid-America Music Festival, is a premier music experience set on the 64-acre grounds of the Black Silo Winery in Trenton, Mo, about 100 miles north of Kansas City. Featuring renowned headliners and emerging artists, the festival includes artists representing genres of Country, Bluegrass, Rock & Blues, food trucks, exhibitors, free wine tastings, a beer garden, cigar and scotch lounge area, hot air balloon rides, camping, and a whole lot more. Witness unforgettable performances and discover the engaging attractions nestled around every corner that makes the Mid-America Music Festival a can't-miss summer tradition for music fans from around the Mid-West. Don’t miss Grundy County’s largest celebration of the year.

With deep community roots, Duane Urich & Jenn Hottes, owners of the Black Silo Winery and founders of the Black Silo Foundation, chose to combine their love and passion for wine, music and entertainment and create the Mid-America Music Festival. The festival emerged from an idea to bring something to the Trenton community that had never been done before, something that would have a substantial impact to community’s economy for years to come and give patrons from near and far an incredible experience.
Duane (aka) Turbo and Jenn (aka) Biscuit are incredibly grateful for the community support they have received in their efforts to host North Central Missouri’s largest music festival. The Mid-America Music Festival will undoubtedly grow each year into an event worth of its namesake “Mid-America”, attracting some of the biggest and best artists in the country. We invite everyone from the heart of the heartland to attend and experience a fantastic three-day event. Park an RV, pitch a tent or come for just a day and settle in for an unforgettable weekend of fun in the sun. We hope to see you in July.


The festival will provide visibility for corporate exposure to 1,000's of guests. In addition, the festival’s advertising reach exceeds a 100-mile radius of Trenton, MO. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available and all donations are tax deductible.
