Cartersville Downtown Development Authority and Main Street Program is pleased to announce plans for the Third Annual Cartersville Bluegrass & Folk Festival, scheduled for Saturday, October 17, in downtown Cartersville. For the past two years, this event has featured several bands on two stages, a Kids’ Corner, complete with a bounce house, and various games and activities, and has drawn more than 2,000 attendees. The event is free of charge to attend. Last year, Cartersville DDA received the 2014 Award of Association Excellence for having the Best Event with attendance of 2500+ from the Northwest Georgia Historic High Country.
The Cartersville Bluegrass & Folk Festival will be held from 11 AM to 9:00 PM. Cloggers will kick off on the Depot Stage at 11 AM. Held in Friendship Plaza, next to the train depot, the Depot Stage will feature a different band every hour on the half hour. Located in the bay area of the former fire station, the Firehouse Stage will feature a different band at the top of each hour beginning at Noon.
If businesses or individuals are interested in getting involved with the event, sponsors of all levels and volunteers are greatly needed to ensure the success of the Third Annual Cartersville Bluegrass & Folk Festival.
