Pack your pup tent and shake the stink bugs out of your sleeping bag--this weekend, June 15 & 16, Watermelon Park Campground in Berryville, VA, will be home to the 3rd Annual Shenandoah Riverside Festival! Not only is this festival sure to be fun, it's also a fundraiser with 100% of the proceeds going to help clean up the Shenandoah River via Earthkorps.
All of the bands for this event sound amazing, so I'm super excited for two full days of some top-notch tunes! Headliners Rhonda Vincent (Queen of Bluegrass) and Iron Horse will be first time shows for me, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing them perform live. Pretty Picks for this fest are Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Acoustic Burgoo, Circa Blue, Drymill Road, and Lonesome Highway: I've seen these bands before, I'll see them this weekend, and I look forward to seeing them at future festivals. As for the other bands, I have a feeling I'll have some new festival favorites to rave about in my post-fest write up.
Tickets are available at the gate: $55 for the weekend, $35 for Saturday, and tent camping is FREE!
