FROM THE CARTERSVILLE PATCH:

Cartersville Downtown Development Authority and Main Street Program are finalizing plans for the first ever Cartersville Bluegrass & Folk Festival, scheduled for Saturday, October 19, in downtown Cartersville. Presented by Cohutta Fishing Co., the all-day festival will feature two stages of entertainment, including bluegrass and folk music, as well as a kids’ area, complete with bounce house, and various games and activities.

And while the Cartersville Bluegrass & Folk Festival ends at 7 p.m., there will be plenty more fun to enjoy in downtown Cartersville. At 7, Tribute—the music of the Allman Brothers, will perform at The Grand Theatre. Tickets are on sale for $15, and can be purchased at The Grand Theatre Box Office.
