The sad news is that we will not be doing the 6th annual River and Roots Fest this year. Although the festival was a success in every possible way (even selling out in 2018), unavoidable circumstances for Shepherds Ford Productions and Watermelon Park Campground have forced us to put this wonderful festival on hold this year. We want to thank everyone for their hard work over the past 5 years in making it happen! We will keep you informed on the status of this festival if anything changes for this year. Otherwise we will try and reserect it next year!
