The Homestead Festival celebrates entertainment and education in rural Tennessee

Thousands of rural Americans flocked to the Homestead Festival at Rory Feek’s farm in Columbia, Tennessee.

The Homestead Festival once again marked a weekend full of live music, education, and lots of fun for all ages! Singer-songwriter Rory Feek hosts the event at his farm in Columbia, Tenn.

“I just want to encourage people to think about where they are in their lives, to consider planting some new seeds, whatever that may look at,” Feek said.

This year was the second time the annual event was held, offering thousands of people a chance to participate in educational demonstrations as well as opportunities to get their hands dirty in various homesteading activities.

Next year’s festival dates have already been announced and will take place June 7-8, 2024.
