Clint Dickerson can see the pros and cons of moving the 3rd Annual Potterville Gospel Fest entirely to Lake Alliance Park in Potterville. Excitingly, the move will allow for the headlining acts to rock the main stage Friday and Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
Dickerson said he is excited for this year’s lineup, which will feature acoustic acts in the “Lounge,” located in the pavilion, throughout the day, followed by performances on the main stage each day.
“We try to book acts that are uplifting, and family-oriented,” Dickerson said. “Not everything is Christian. We have some classic rock in addition to a few southern gospel groups.”
The main stage kicks off Friday, June 7 at 7 p.m. with Chainbreakers, followed by Ransomed, and closing with the headlining act, Chosen. Saturday night’s main stage lineup leads off with Matt Moore at 7 p.m., followed by family-friendly comedian Will McDaniel, and closed out with Sweet Crystal. Music hits the main stage on Sunday, June 9 at 2 p.m. with the Jacob David Band, and closes out with Verosity.
Guests can enjoy all of the musical performances free of charge, Dickerson said.
“I said when putting this on that I’d never campaign for money,” he said. “We’ve been blessed. The bands come and play for free, all of the workers are volunteers, and a lot of people pitch in where they can.”
The fair and pony rides are two things that aren’t offered free, though Dickerson said he went with a different company to provide the fair rides this year, and the price for a wristband has gone down from $20 in the past to $14 this year.
“The petting zoo is completely free,” Dickerson said. “We try to keep as much free as possible.”
There will be market and food vendors on site throughout the weekend in addition to all of the musical entertainment.
Also new this year is a cornhole tournament being put on by New Hope Community Church of Charlotte. The tournament takes place on Saturday, June 8 at noon. Pre-registration can be done online at https://bit.ly/2KaWxgM.
