On the heels of Taste of Douglasville this past weekend comes the next of a long series of great events in our historic Downtown Douglasville. In July Douglasville will play host to what is being billed as the “Largest Country Music Festival in the region”. Event planners expect crowds of over 100,000 to fill Foxhall Farms in South Douglas for the event with top country artists expected to be there from Deana Carter, to Corey Smith, Bubba Sparxxx, The Lacs, and more! The event had such great local artist interest that there was simply no way to book them all for the festival. Out of this, an idea was born to host a contest to see which local artists would make the cut into the festival. The contest would be held over a number of weeks across three cities: Douglasville, Carrollton and Newnan (the three cities that The City Menus covers). That contest continues this Friday here in Douglasville at 6pm at O’Neal Plaza downtown.
The event itself is free, as well as free parking available at the city parking deck next to the conference center, and will include ticket giveaways for the festival in July as well as a chance to ride the mechanical bull for other prizes from the festival sponsors. Douglasville Irish Bred Pub will be serving beer and adult beverages, but rest assured, this is an event for the whole family. If you miss the first event on Friday, fear not. There will be two other Douglasville opportunities to see and vote for your favorite before the festival. Here’s the lineup dates and the cities/venues where the battles take place:
