Happy Fall Y’all!
Are you ready to kick off our fantastic Lake Cumberland fall season with some good ole outdoor festival fun? Then, join us this Saturday, October 2, 2021 for Festival at the Springs at Russell Springs City Park. You are in for a real treat with some great country music.
Music begins at 5:30 pm central featuring a soulful acoustic performance by country singer-songwriter Taryn Papa, a top 17 contender on The Voice!
Then, take your hats off and amp up your energy levels to the hit music of country great Drake White. In concert, he and his band (“Drake White & The Big Fire”) opened up performances for such musicians as Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tyler Bryant, and Channing Wilson. White has opened for Little Big Town and the Zac Brown Band. In early 2013, he released his debut single “Simple Life” through MCA Nashville. White signed to Big Machine Records’ re-establishment of Dot Records in June 2014. The first single, “It Feels Good” released to country radio on February 24, 2015. The second single, “Livin’ the Dream” released to country radio on December 7, 2015. On August 19, 2016, White released “Spark”, his debut album under Dot Records. It charted at No. 4 on the Top Country Albums chart. The album’s third single, “Makin’ Me Look Good Again”, was released in 2016. A new 5-song EP titled “Pieces” was released on May 4, 2018.
Enjoy these fabulous fall sounds, appropriate for all ages and completely FREE of Charge! While you’re at the festival, it’s a perfect time to explore one of Kentucky’s most beautiful state resort park lakes. There is still enough warm weather for fishing and boating on Lake Cumberland, and you’ll find plenty of places to stay, places to eat, and tourist attractions nearby.
Lake Cumberland State Resort Park has something for everyone. The Lake Cumberland State Resort Park campground shows off Kentucky’s fall splendor and is the perfect setting for an outdoor vacation. Lake Cumberland cabin and cottage rentals as well as luxurious lodge hotel rooms and RV sites showcase spectacular views of the lake and surrounding Kentucky woods.
Russell Springs and Lake Cumberland State Resort Park are an easy drive just over two hours from both Louisville and Nashville – between I-75 and I-65 near the Cumberland Parkway.
Festival at the Springs is located at 130 Milton Heights in Russell Springs, Kentucky.
