Southern rock, a fireworks show, classic cars, and more than 30 arts and crafts dealers will all convene Saturday, June 6, at the 11th annual Wartrace MusicFest in Wartrace, Tenn. The six-piece Allman Brothers tribute band Midnight Riders, from Nashville, will close the show along with a fireworks display beginning at 10 p.m. Threatening weather conditions prevented the Riders from performing at last year’s festival.
Other mainstage acts include Bad Monkey, a high-energy crowd favorite playing classic ’70s rock, and The Road Crew, performing ’50s-style rockabilly. Music will start at 1 p.m. with Nashville singer-songwriter Chris Morse, the Low Electric Revival, Dave & Darren, songwriter Everett Brown and country music favorite Mike Allen and Friends on the Adams & Floyd Contractors Tent Stage.
Gates will open at 10 a.m. with arts and crafts booths, a classic car display, and barbeque cooked on the premises. Covered table seating will be available in a cabaret setting near the tent stage. A Kids Zone with an inflatable slide, art tables, hula hoops, face painting, cornhole contests and pony rides will be open all day.
