Titus to come alive with bluegrass Sept. 28

Published 9:04am Wednesday, September 25, 2013

The 13th annual Titus Bluegrass Festival will offer a day of family entertainment and activities next Saturday. The event will feature music, arts and crafts, concessions and more Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the grounds of the Titus Community Center.

Each year more than a thousand people attend the day-long family-centered event. Guests relax in the shade, listen to music, browse at vendor booths and enjoy visiting with friends and acquaintances.

“This is a just a wonderful event every year,” said Titus resident Phyllis Kennedy, who volunteers at the festival annually. “Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the music, the vendor booths, the food and the atmosphere.”

This year’s bands will include Southern Gentlemen, Clear Blue Sky, Fibergrass and Goat Hill String Band. The groups will provide continuous bluegrass, country and gospel music throughout the day.

Admission will be $5 for adults and children younger than 12 will be admitted free.

Attendees should bring their own chairs. Pets and alcohol are not allowed. Concessions will be available as well as children’s activities.

The festival will be held in a shady grove on the grounds of the Titus Community Center. Proceeds will be used for continued restoration and improvements to the center, which was built in 1928. The center is a focal point for community activities such as wedding receptions, church parties, birthday and anniversary celebrations and more.

The Titus Community Center is located approximately 10 miles north of Wetumpka on U.S. Highway 231, then six miles north on County Road 29.
