Plans Continue for November Music Festival at Legion Park in Louisville

Committee members are working hard on details for the First Annual "Runnin & Strummin" Legion
Music Festival set for November 10 at Louisville's Legion State Park. After considering the rich musical history in and around Winston County, a group of local folks involved in the non-profit organization, Friends of Legion State Park, set dreams to action for the November event.

Details will be finalized soon as issues such as parking, venues, staffing, transportation, concessions and of course, performers are completed. Several venues across the landscape of the park will be the sites for a variety of music and fun throughout the day. Events will begin with a 5K run scheduled for 7:30 am on the morning of the festival.

A number of performers are lined up already including: The Wells Gospel Quartet, Clay Mercer, Maim & Shank featuring Louisville's own Caleb Childs, Jeanne Jones & Friends and others as well. The event will conclude with a patriotic tribute in honor of Veterans Day.

Winston WebNews will post updates over the coming weeks that will include additional performers, schedules and events. You can follow the festival on their website at  and on their Facebook page at
