The Red Horse Porch Party is an outdoor event with art, live music, horses, food, and drink. We have herd visits with our horses available in the early afternoon, along with collaborative art stations, spring weather, and fresh air. We’ll be serving food from Farmhouse Deli and beer and wine from local producers. We’ll have our Artful Auction where you can bid on local art, gift card bundles, and wonderful travel experiences. Live music from the Red Horse Ramblers, Great Lakes Brass, & the Max Lockwood Band. Herd visits and family hours begin at 2 pm. The live music kicks off at 5 pm

5 pm: Red Horse Ramblers

6:30 pm: Great Lakes Brass

8 pm: Max Lockwood Band


Songwriter, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and poet Max Lockwood has a sound rooted in songcraft and heartfelt lyricism. His music is a unification of rock & roll with folk and pop. With full arrangements and rich, poetic lyrics Max creates deep, sonic landscapes that reveal truths of love, adversity, growth. The intertwined essences bring a thoughtful and fresh new take on the singer-songwriter genre.


Founded and led by Red Horse’s own, Fred Bueltmann – Great Lakes Brass draws from New Orleans traditions, where brass bands express the pulse of communities; celebrating life, mourning loss, and looking ahead. Reverence for history is intertwined with ongoing creative adaptation, and our pledge to play it forward.

Trumpet, trombone, and saxophone play familiar melodies driven by sousaphone and percussion. On the street or the stage, our music moves.


A home grown debut, the Red Horse Ramblers are an eclectic mix of traditional and original music from Red Horsers close to our hearts, featuring Fred Story & Tanne
