On August 23 - 24, 2013, festival fans come to Potter County and the small town of Austin for the Austin Dam Show.
The Dam Show is an annual music festival that brings live music and its fans to the area known as the PA Wilds. The show is held at a most unique venue - the Austin Dam Park, where the ruins of a giant concrete Dam that failed over a century ago still stand. The Dam ruins and surrounding mountains create a natural amphitheater and a Dam cool experience. At dark, the Dam lights up with a colorful, animated lightshow. It's a sight you won't see anywhere but the Dam Park at Austin.
