HOT WATER HILLS MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL
3 p.m. Hill Wheatley Plaza. $5.
It's year two for the Hot Water Hills Music and Arts Festival, brought to us by Low Key Arts, the nonprofit that also puts on Valley of the Vapors and other great Spa City events.
The festival "features music rooted in Southern heritage," and this year the lineup includes Mississippi's Jimbo Mathus & The Tri-State Coalition, Austin's Dana Falconberry, Louisiana's Dikki Du & The Zydeco Krewe and Dirtfoot, Mississippi/Missouri duo Water Liars and, of course, acts from the Natural State, including Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass, The Mockingbird Hillbilly Band and more. Here's the full music schedule.
Along with all the music, there are several workshops and other events, including a cardboard house building competition. This year, HWH has gone the zero waste route, so you can have a good time and know that it won't end up adding to the landfill.
Saturday's festivities kick off at 11 a.m.
