Town of Phil Campbell hosts 18th annual Hoedown this weekend

The 18th annual Phil Campbell Hoedown has been set for June 14-15 in Memorial Park.

Vendors will be set up with food, games and wares such as clothing and jewelry, and live music will entertain festival-goers Friday and Saturday night.

Friday night’s entertainment will be sponsored by Ambulance Billing Service. Joyful Hearts, a southern gospel trio, will kick off the live music at 6:30 p.m., followed by Southern Image Quartet at 7 p.m. The gospel group New Ground will round out the night starting at 8 p.m.

Mayor Steve Bell will orate the opening ceremonies Saturday at noon, followed by Kayla Hamilton singing the “Star-Spangled Banner.”

Local talent will take the stage from 12:30-2 p.m.

From 2-2:45 p.m. Jacob McCarley will perform. The Jerry Martin Band will perform from 3-4 p.m., and The Parrish Brothers will perform from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Fairlanes will perform from 6-7 p.m. The JJ Scott Band will perform from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Handshake Promise is the headlining act and will take the stage starting at 9 p.m.

Sweet Tea Productions will be providing the sound system and lighting.

The festival will see two changes this year: there will be no 5K or car show. Everything else, however, will proceed as usual, including the Bubble Blowing Contest at 10 a.m. Saturday and drawings for prizes throughout the day.

T-shirts and hats are for sale. Hats are one size and come in grey and white or grey and black for $15. T-shirts are white and are $10 for youth sizes and adult sizes small through XL or $15 for adult sizes 2XL-4XL.
