The Etowah Moonshine Festival will take place June 12 and 13 from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. at Savannah Oaks Winery in Delano, Tn. The festival highlights the region’s moonshine and musical heritage in the heart of Southeast Tennessee.
The event will feature some of the region’s most-famous “Moonshiners” from the Discovery Channel show: Chico, Roy Grooms, Mark and Digger, and Steve Brown and his Hurricane Ridge band and more. In addition, festival-goers can enjoy bluegrass and other live music, food and craft vendors, a mechanical bull, and beer and wine gardens.
“Come on down to the festival to meet your favorite TV Moonshiners, try one of our 30 different beers on tap at the beer garden, grab a bottle of wine, eat some great food, and shop some local arts and crafts vendors,” says Sandi LeQuire, event organizer and owner of Dixie Queen Stills in Etowah. “Feel free to bring an instrument to play in the open bluegrass jam sessions and a lawn chair so you can sit and stay a while.”
