Grant County’s Spring Mountain Festival has a new venue.
Typically hosted at Petersburg City Park, the 22nd annual Spring Mountain Festival will be at the Tri-County Fairgrounds. The festival takes place April 25-27 and will again feature bands, artisans, crafters, food and various other vendors.
The new venue will allow the Spring Mountain Festival to improve, and ultimately, continue to grow, says Grant County Convention & Visitors Bureau Executive Director Hanna Weaver.
“The festival has had a lot of great years at the City Park, but the festival committee is very excited for the first official year at the Tri-County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds grant us more space to work with—that means more room for food vendors, artisans, crafters, more entertainment—and we’ll be able to hopefully attract and accommodate more attendees.”
This year’s music artists include country singer Glen Templeton, the artist behind the popular song, “Ball Cap”, which has been at number one for weeks on Sirius XM show, The Highway: HOT 45 Countdown. Country-rocker Shane Thomas is back this year.
The event offers an antique car, truck, tractor and motorcycle show. The April Fools River Float Race, Civil War train rides and a 5k race are planned. All events are free, except for the Civil Train Rides.
