The following week, the party moves to George Core Park where on Friday, Aug. 2, gates will open at 5 p.m. ET. Vendors and live music will be on hand for hours of pre-weekend entertainment.

This year’s festival will include music acts from all over the region, from Tallahassee to Fort Walton to South Florida, to right here in Port St. Joe.

The Curry Brothers, Flabbergasted and Jim Morris will provide the lineup for the first day and music will go until 11 p.m. in the evening.

“There will be music the entire time that the gates are open,” said Pickett. “At any point you can come out and hear live music.”

There are 57 vendors booked with two weeks to go. Arts and crafts will be the central focus and artists will be on-hand to showcase and sell their work.

On Saturday, Aug. 3, festival gates open at 11 a.m. ET for the classic car show and a day-long concert.

The car show, to be held inside the gates, along Miss Zola’s Drive, will award prizes in eight categories.
