Last year, Dandridge was home to a brand new music festival known as the “Bare Bones Music Festival” and we are happy to announce that the festival was successful enough that it will be returning again for 2019!
Being held on a 36 acre farm on East Highway 25 70, the Bare Bones Festival is a 2-day music festival being held on Labor Day weekend on August 31st and September 1st to benefit the Jungle Habitat effort for exotic animals. Their official website has this to state:
“Located just down the road from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the beautiful Smokie Mountains of Tennessee! This event is held on a 36 acre farm in Dandridge, Tennessee and is destined to become East Tennessee’s premier musical venue. If your planning to be in the area, come and enjoy the music and fun!
The Bare Bones Music Festival held on a 36 acre former farm in Dandridge, Tennessee and was purchased by the owner of Jungle Habitat to provide a safe home for abandoned and distressed exotic animals. In support of their cause and in partnership with local area musicians the Bare Bones Music Festival was created. The event was created as an opportunity for area musicians to perform, learn and grow. In turn some proceeds from the event are donated to Jungle Habitat to support their mission of rescuing and protecting exotic wildlife. Established in 2018 the Bare Bones Music Festival seeks to bring together musicians, musical artists, their extended family, friends and fans to listen, share, collaborate, engage and enjoy music!”
