Event Description

This year's benefit concert will raise money for the new local grassroots organization Build It Up East TN.  Build It Up East TN is creating and supporting a comprehensive food justice program in East Tennessee through reclaiming local food culture.  Future plans include ...organizing a mobile farmers market and hosting workshops to increase skills and raise awareness on how social inequalities impact food insecurity. By bringing together members from diverse communities to create a sustainable, agricultural based economy, Build It Up East TN intends to reclaim our region’s food sovereignty and revive the spirit of independence in Appalachia.  In order to fulfill these goals, we need to join together as a community to support these efforts.  The cost to get in the door is $7 for adults and children by donation.  The benefit concert will include a Kid's Carnival from the hours of 3p.m. to 8p.m.  There will be games, arts & crafts, and family music during that time.  Refreshments will be also available for purchase. Please bring the whole family! Phenomenal local bands and musicians will be sharing their talents to bring a piece of our traditional culture and entertainment to the stage.  Check back often for updated band list and music schedule. Bands~ Krys Dula and Friends DJ Naanstop Charis Hickson Allison Mullins Sarah Saunders and Jamie Dove The Void The Living Trees Levi Lane Sons of Bluegrass For more information on Build It Up!
