This family-friendly, weekend-long music festival features live music, pickin’ circles and camping just 30 minutes west of Nashville, and brings together many different styles of music such as classic country, bluegrass, Western swing, honky tonk, and Old Time, on a tree-lined meadow by the creek for a weekend of friends, family, face painting, square dances, music workshops, a fiddle contest and more!
This year’s lineup boasts The Travelin’ McCourys, Peter Rowan, Robbie Fulks, The Flea Market Hustlers, the inaugural Hoedown on the Harpeth All-Star Band (featuring David Grier, Shad Cobb, Mike Bub, Casey Campbell & Cory Walker), 50 Shades of Hay, Adam Olmstead, Shad Cobb & Jenny Obert + Friends, The Farmer and Adele, The Cowpokes and Ray Welch & The Grass Kickers.

The 3rd Annual Hoedown On The Harpeth takes place at Hayshed Farms in Kingston Springs, Tennessee, and includes a kids’ crafting barn, food and craft vendors, pop-up pickin’ circles in the parking lot and nightly square dances with live music. And there’s bound to be some late-night jamming after the stage is empty. “Come out and bring the family for creek play, strolling in the meadow and some of the South’s best down home music amid the mist and fire flies,” Hohenwald native and founder Robert Dunn said. Kids under 12 are free when accompanied by a paid adult and there are discounts for early ticket purchase.
Hoedown On The Harpeth begins at noon on Friday and goes until noon on Sunday.
“Join us this October 12-13, 2018 as we embark on the 3nd annual Hoedown on The Harpeth. Mark your calendar and most importantly, tell a friend where you will be in October, come rain or shine,” Dunn added.
The inaugural Hoedown On The Harpeth took place in the fall, October 14-15, 2016. Unlike the many modern and mass produced music festivals, this event was more like a traditional country themed music festival, where people gathered and enjoyed music both on and off the stage. Nashville is known as “Music City” and many jams happened at this event. Often the highlight of festivals is the music that is played informally throughout the campgrounds and under the shade trees.
