The 1st Annual Headin’ Home Fest: November 10-13, 2022 in Lyons, GA!
A True Family Festival
Hosted by the family band Headin’ Home from Bloomingdale, GA, Headin’ Home Fest is a celebration of great bluegrass music and fellowship. Come join us for four days in the Georgia fall weather this November, enjoying world-class entertainment from some of the best modern bluegrass bands on the scene, camping at the beautiful Ohoopee River Campground, and pickin’ all day and night! Get ready for a refreshing and relaxing weekend of clean, uplifting fun. Headin’ Home Fest is a homecoming for the bluegrass family!
Once the RV sites at the campground are full, there’s plenty of room for unlimited dry campers, plus lots of tent sites! (You’re not likely to need either AC or heat in November in south GA, so with a generator for power you’ll be plenty comfy!) There’s also a state park and several hotels just 15 minutes down the road. More info here >>
The Ohoopee River Campground is located in the small town of Lyons, GA. This woodsy, spacious property sits right on the water of the Ohoopee River, and has a limited number of full-service RV hookups as well as a permanent stage. It’s the perfect spot for a bluegrass festival!
The inaugural Headin’ Home Fest in November 2022 will feature riveting stage performances by The Little Roy & Lizzy Show, Retro 78, Backline, The Edgar Loudermilk Band, Blue Holler, Boonie Bevins & Carolina Drive, Willie Wells & The Blue Ridge Mountain Grass, and your host band, Headin’ Home!
There’s so much for the whole family to do and love at Headin’ Home Fest! Besides listening to explosively good bluegrass, you’ll get to enjoy jamming, camping, kayak and canoe renting, fishing, biking, volleyball, horseshoe, a playground, food and drink concessions, and lovely walking trails!
