A country music festival to support local first responders and veterans programs will return to the Myrtle Beach area.
The Vetfest Carolinas 2021 Gone Country Music Festival, which will feature over 40 artists, will have its annual event next weekend.
The three-day event will take place at Boathouse from September 10 to 12.
The Whits End Band will headline the event on Friday, The Piedmont Boys on Saturday and Little Texas on Sunday. They will all take the stage at 8 p.m.
Last year, the event raised more than $ 10,000 through a one-day six-band performance for Hutton House and the Cut That Counts Foundation, two local veterans programs, according to the website of the festival.
But this year, festival organizers plan to raise funds for the Horry County FireFighters Relief Fund and the Folds of Honor, which provide families of deceased and disabled military personnel with educational opportunities through scholarships.
“Our festival is 100% dedicated to his cause and the funds raised go directly to the programs we try to help,” founder Brent Atwood said on the website. “We do this because we feel obligated to those who gave their lives so that we could have ours. “
General admission passes as well as VIP tickets are available in line.
Tickets can be purchased in advance, but donations will also be accepted at the door.
