17th Annual French Broad River Festival


Today the French Broad River Music Festival begins! This family-friendly festival is near and dear to our hearts, as its taken place for years in our neck of the woods: Hot Springs. Thru hikers come off the trail and families take the day off of school and work and head into the woods for a weekend of music, art, and river fun!

From the river clean up, to the kid’s village, to the annual french broad river raft race there is something for everyone at this musical community summit. And you guessed it, the Lotus Lounge will be making an appearance this weekend! Be sure to come by and say hey to our team, you can find us hanging out in the hammocks. And it’s not too late to snag your tickets, find them at the front gate! Two day camping passes and single Saturday passes are still available. Take a look at the full line up and get to know the performing artists!
