35th Annual Hank Williams Festival

Description

Hank Williams Music Park in Georgiana will take on the feel of an old-time country fair for the 35th incarnation of the Hank Williams Festival.

There will be an arts and crafts area, a food court serving carnival fare and, of course, plenty of live country music emanating from the main stage as well as in impromptu picking sessions on the grounds.

The main event is the “Country Music Opry" on Saturday night, modeled after the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Hank's daughter, Jett Williams, will host the Opry portion of the festival and perform her own set of music.

Your ticket includes free admission to the Hank Williams Boyhood Home & Museum, which contains many relics from the singer's life inside the house where he honed his musical skills and often heard the midnight train whining low from the nearby tracks.
