Heritage Day and Uncle Jimmy Thompson Bluegrass Festival

I’ll admit that I don’t know a lot about Granville, TN. I know that it’s a small town on the Cumberland River. I also know that it’s about 1.5 hours away, this Saturday they’re having a festival that’s totally worth mentioning.

Heritage Day is a big festival for Granville (it’s the only one I hear about all year). It’s on the scenic banks of the river and will feature an antique car show, an anqitue tractor and engine show, food court, children’ rides, a petting zoo, and a Confederate Civil War living history memorial service. I’m not 100% sure what that last one means, but it looks to be a great family-friendly event. It runs from 10am-4pm.

Heritage Day is also partnered with the Uncle Jimmy Thompson Bluegrass Festival, which attracted 8,000 people last year. 650-WSM host Eddie Stubbs will be there as your guide through the competition ($3 to register) that starts at 11am through the live music of One Way Out and Stoney Lonesome starting at 6pm. Any event that can get 8,000 people to attend is worth checking out. The Bluegrass Festival will be held at Sutton General Store.

Happy pickin’!
