Foothills Fest Coming to Marshall Oct. 14-15
Missouri’s own “Foothills Fest,” nestled alongside Wood & Huston Bank, is proud to announce this year’s information and artist lineup for the 4th Annual Foothills Fest 2016 that will be held Oct. 14 - 15 at the Saline County Fairgrounds in Marshall.
Performing this year’s event are Kansas City’s “Blues Queen” Samantha Fish, whose 2015 album “Wild Heart” rose to #1 on the Billboard Blues charts, the electric Come Back Alice out of Sarasota, Fla., performing both nights including a special Allman Brothers Tribute set on Friday night, Atlanta's talented Copious Jones, the indie folk-rock trio Violet and the Undercurrents from Columbia, Shreveport rockers Magnolia Brown from Louisiana, heat-bringers Black Daniels and the Bears from Kirksville, Tallent, MO’s The Tallent Brothers, and many more, including for the first time “The Bob James Local Showcase” displaying some of the great local talents.
Festival goers will soak in two days of art, music, food, fun and camping with their closest friends and family as the Foothills Fest crew brings another memory-filled weekend to Mid-Missouri.
Foothills Fest is a rain-or-shine event, so stay aware of the weather and be prepared leading up to the event. The festival is child-friendly and all children 12 and under get in free and must be accompanied by an adult. The Kid’s Zone will be open to the little ones 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Camping is FREE TO TICKET HOLDERS and those participating are encouraged to arrive early in the day to get settled before gates open, whether you arrive on Friday or Saturday. You can bring your own food and beverage coolers, alcohol included, but it must stay in the designated camp area and outside of the festival area. There will be food & drink vendors as well as a beer garden once you’re in the festival area.
Must be 18 years or older to camp without a guardian. RV’s and campers ARE allowed. Fire pits are permitted and must be of the standing/above ground type and no wider than three feet in diameter.
This is not a campground, just an area to set up camp for the weekend, so no electricity is provided, but generators are welcome as long as they are properly maintained and not disruptive. No dogs will be allowed at the fairgrounds. No fireworks are permitted. The wonderful people of the SCFG are kind enough to allow us to host our event on their property, and we respectfully oblige to their few requests.
