The festival that began in honor of those famous fainting goats of Marshall County returns for its 16th year at Rock Creek Park in Lewisburg, TN and this year’s lineup of goat shows, musical entertainment and activities for the whole family promises to draw crowds from all across the nation and beyond.
The Goats, Music and More Festival has been honored by the Southeast Tourism Society as a Top 20 Event for October twice with its unique southern flavor, top-notch free musical entertainment, goat shows that celebrate fainting and Boer goats, barbecue, food of every description, arts and crafts and kids games and activities.
Vendors of all kinds will line the road at Rock Creek Park beginning Friday morning with anything and everything for which a festival could ask. There is always great food, arts and crafts, unique products of all kinds and more.
For the kids, the Goats, Music and More Festival features a whole section of games and activities including pony rides, a petting zoo, bounce house, mechanical bull and a 35’ slide. There are so many fun activities you just have to come and see for yourself.
