Festivals are back beginning this weekend and we are here for it! That’s right our first festival in more than a year will be the 2021 Big Shanty Festival in Kennesaw, GA.
An annual tradition, Downtown Kennesaw will once again host the Big Shanty Festival on Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18, 2021. The festival combines the best of the rich heritage of Kennesaw and the Civil War era with today’s fun filled activities. And attendees will enjoy the more than 175 booths with arts & crafts, food vendors, merchants, and live entertainment. Fontis Water is the official water of the Big Shanty Festival!
Because the festival is being mindful of safety, the Superior Plumbing Big Shanty Festival will follow all social distancing guidelines provided by local & state officials.
This year’s event offers great entertainment on different stages and a variety of foods to please everyone’s palate. The Kennesaw Big Shanty Festival kicks off with a parade on Saturday at 9:30 am. The parade features floats, high school bands, marchers, and over 1,000 youngsters representing every sport association in the area. The Parade will start at Adams Park and continue down Main Street through downtown Kennesaw. And the best part? Of course, it is that admission is free!
