PC Hoedown returns for another weekend of community fun

A long-standing and well-loved tradition, the Phil Campbell Hoedown is just around the corner.

Held in Phil Campbell Memorial Park, this year’s festival will take place June 17-18. The two-day event features music, vendors, contests and door prizes donated by area businesses.

The festivities kick off Friday evening at 5 p.m. with a welcome from Phil Campbell Mayor Mike McQuary, followed by an evening of gospel music, as well as a cruise-in at the Phil Campbell High School parking lot from 6-8 p.m.

“We’re excited about this year’s events,” said McQuary. “The Hoedown is always a lot of fun.”

Southern Image takes the stage at 6 p.m., followed by Resound at 7 p.m., Purpose at 8 p.m. and Gold City at 9 p.m.

Saturday’s events kick off at 11 a.m. with a repeated welcome by the mayor, followed by “The Star-Spangled Banner” and the raising of the flag.

Throughout the day, festival-goers can take part in a variety of contests, including cornhole, bubblegum blowing, hot dog eating and dancing. Various local talent will perform, including LA Outlaws at 5 p.m., Treymane at 6:30 p.m. and The Midnighters at 8 p.m.
