Live music and food highlight Fredonia Heritage Festival

FREDONIA — If listening to notable music, whether it be rock, gospel, bluegrass and anything in between that’s enjoyable, this year’s Fredonia Heritage Festival is coming up on Saturday.

The festival will take place from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. EDT on the spacious grounds and inside the historic Fredonia Community House at 6160 Chambers County Road 222.

The renowned Lard Bucket Band will headline the live music. The band covers a range of music that has kept them in demand for 30 years.

Several members of the Lard Bucket Band have played, and been on tour, with the likes of Charlie Daniels, Grandpa Jones, Gene Watson and Vern Gosdin.

“Having this unique group as our anchor is a major plus for us this year,” Fredonia Heritage President J.J. Frickert said. “We will also have noted area TV personality Kevin Dunn starting the day with an opening hymn. We will again be able to enjoy the ever-popular sounds of Amber and the Dixieland Bluegrass Band and Wiregrass.”

As always, there will be numerous vendors offering a wide range of handcrafted items and favorite festival foods.

“On this day and in this one location, you can Christmas shop while eating good food and enjoying great music,” Frickert said.
