What exactly is this International Riders & Rockabilly Festival? According to the Riders & Rockabilly website, the festival is “a month-long celebration of the music, food, agriculture, history, and cultural arts” of West Tennessee. It started at the beginning of July in Jackson, TN., and traveled to the Tomato Festival in Ripley. After that, it moved to Brownsville for a musical weekend inspired by the blues and soul of the South. And for its last stop before wrapping up, the Riders & Rockabilly Festival will find its way to the hidden gem of West Tennessee: Union City where Discovery Park of America is located.
July 24 and 25 will be the weekend to visit Discovery Park if you want to purchase and enjoy a delicious catfish dinner from Blue Bank Resort and hear live music concerts throughout each evening. It is going to be a family-friendly event where everyone can have fun! There will be free face painting, a train the kids can ride on, and also a water slide to help beat the July heat. The walking track at Discovery Park will be open if you want to take a leisurely stroll, or if fishing is your style you can bring your pole and try your luck in the lake. Libation Station will also be open that evening.
So forget the movies this coming weekend. Bring the family outdoors to Discovery Park of America as the Riders & Rockabilly Festival comes to a close.
