Downtown Enumclaw will be filled with tunes of all types Saturday as the fifth annual Enumclaw Music Festival brings performers to three stages.

On Stage One, Brian Vogan and Danika Morrow kick things off with “kindie rock” at 9 a.m., followed by singer-songwriter Nancy Stewart at 10:30 and crowd favorite Eric Ode at noon. Ode is making his fourth festival appearance.

Stage Three, at Porter Avenue and Griffin Street, opens with the blues/soul sound of Boots and the Broken Laces at 10 a.m. and includes a tribute to 1990s rock with Blackbox from noon to 1 p.m. Following are Celtic Treble at 2 p.m.; The Forgotten 45’s, indie rock, 4 p.m.; and Americana sounds from the Rece Jay Band at 6 p.m. The day closes with a rock/country band, The 410’s, playing from 8 to 9 p.m.
