Titus, AL – Bring your lawn chair and your appetite to the annual Titus Bluegrass Festival on Saturday, September 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The music festival, now in its ninth year, allows attendees to relax and enjoy the picking and grinning of live bluegrass music.

On stage this year will be perennial favorites Southern Gentlemen, East Wind, the Bluegrass Biscuits, and Kelli Johnson and Friends.

“We’ll also have some of the best barbecue around, as well as homemade cakes and cookies and other concessions,” Tom Hinton, president of the festival committee, said.

Admission is $5.00 for adults and children under 12 get in free. A cookbook compiled by Titus residents will be on sale for $10 during the festivities.

Proceeds will be used for continued restoration and improvements to the Titus Community Center, which was built in 1928. The center is a focal point for community activities, such as wedding receptions, church parties, birthday and anniversary celebrations, and many more.

“We’re looking forward to another fun and successful bluegrass festival. Last year, despite high gas prices and a detour due to bridge construction, the festival attracted more than 800 attendees. Everyone had a wonderful time,” Hinton said. “We were able to do some work on the community center, and upgrade the stage.”

The Titus Community Center is located approximately 10 miles north of Wetumpka on U.S. Highway 231, then north on County Road 29. More information is available on the web at www.titusbluegrassfestival.blogspot.com or by contacting Hinton at 334-567-9059.
