Get Ready For the Incredible Atwood Music Festival
Every year, the Atwood Water Park is the scenic backdrop for the Atwood Music Festival. Nestled on the bank of the Pearl River, this stunning entertainment space showcases the natural beauty of Mississippi and provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor festivals. Here’s everything you’ll need to know about the Atwood Music Festival.
The Story Behind
Since 1975, the Atwood Music Festival has encapsulated its visitors with incredible tunes, great atmosphere, and delicious Southern food. The first fest was known as the Atwood Bluegrass Festival. The Pearl River Basin Development District and the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce created this celebration to promote the Atwood Water Park. From there, the Atwood Music Festival became one of the most popular festivals in Mississippi. It’s now regarded as the longest running music festival in Mississippi.
Three incredible artists are scheduled to perform at this year’s Atwood Music Festival. These talents include William Michael Morgan, Little Texas, and Drake White. With powerful vocals, fine-tuned instruments, and wonderful hits, each performer has their own distinct style that defines the country music genre. You’re sure to delight in the wonderful sounds over the two-day festival and maybe even discover your new favorite artist.
As you enjoy the outdoor festival, treat yourself to the incredible local cuisine. Surrounding the venue, you’ll see food trucks and various stands selling soulful food and mouthwatering treats that everyone can enjoy. Dishes like chicken bog and funnel cakes will be at the 2017 Atwood Music Festival.
