NORFOLK, Va. — Bringing Nashville to Norfolk!
Saturday, September 18 is Hampton Roads' first-ever NashFest 757 Food and Music Festival.
From noon until 8 p.m., you can head to Town Point Park in Downtown Norfolk, where you'll be able to enjoy a celebration of Nashville culture with food and of course, music! The one-day festival will feature national and local recording artists, including singer and Smithfield native Celeste Kellogg.
"I'm so excited for Nashville to be brought to the 757," Kellogg told 13News Now. "There are so many people I talk with at shows who say, 'I want to go to Nashville, I want to experience Nashville.' And for those who haven't been able to go yet, they get a little taste of that this weekend from all the music acts. They're kind of giving you a wide variety of southern rock, country, a little bit of everything, but you also get the food experience that I will partake in after I perform."
Kellogg said NashFest 757 will have something for everyone, even if you're not a big fan of country music.
"People have this perception of country music that it's like, 'My dog died and I'm going to sit on my back porch with my banjo and cry' kind of thing, ha!" Kellogg said. "But once you actually listen to it, the musicianship is amazing. That's one of the main things I love about country music is the music, like the actual music that goes into it. It's a fun time, it's a rockin' time!"
NashFest 757 is free and open to the public.
13News Now is a proud sponsor of the event.
