The Family Dream

If you build it, they will come.

Music is the best.

Rockcastle Riverside is the culmination of years of dreaming, hard work and preparation.  John has always had a passion for music. From playing drums in his church's band as a teenager to running an outdoor music park in the hills of Eastern Kentucky, he has always found a way to bring music into his life.  For years, he and his children, Jessica and David, talked about building the ultimate outdoor venue. They wanted a place that musicians could feel at home, and people could come to enjoy both nature and art.


After a successful career running a scrap company, John Hamilton decided it was time to make this dream a reality. When he found this piece of land, he knew it was the ideal place to dig in and build a place  like they had always talked about.

A place for family. A place for friends. A place to call home
