HE IS COMING TO MEADVILLE - With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart.
The Homochitto River Festival is proud to announce the second headliner. RONNIE MCDOWELL!!! McDowell has charted more than 40 hits on Billboard country music charts. We are happy to have him at the festival.
The Homochitto River Festival is a time to come home. Come to small town Meadville, MS and enjoy a day full of entertainment featuring Franklin County’s Showcase of Music. Other activities include an art show, vendor booths, cook-off, trunk-a-treat, river race and 5K run, pet parade, kids game area, Dunkin' Booth, great food and drinks and much much more.
Come join us in Meadville. We have many vendors with a variety of products for sale.
This year we have expanded the vendor area to include an Outdoor Alley which will feature a multitude of outdoor equipment, activities and food. In addition, we are going to have regional vendors.
We have activities for all ages:
For the Kids we have a Pet Parade, Jumpers, Play Area, TRUNK-A TREAT and Musical Petting Zoo..
