TRUSSVILLE — The 41st Annual Trussville City Fest “Better Together” was a huge success on Saturday, September 11.
The festivities started at 9 a.m. with a 20th-anniversary observance of the 2001 attack on America at the Veteran’s Memorial.
Festivity goers were able to enjoy a day filled with laughter, joy, and tasty treats, whether it was playing in the expanded Bryant Bank Kids’ Area, admiring America’s First Federal Credit Union Marketplace with various business booths and vendors, devouring some of the most popular food trucks around, or admiring fine art that was available around the festival.
Still, the excitement did not end there. Trussville Downtown Merchants Association members offered deals, discounts, and other shoppers’ delights in and around the Main Street business district.
It’s not too late to join in the fun because a festival is not without music, and Trussville City Fest had plenty to share at the festival site and the Trussville Entertainment District. Festival-goers have to look no further than the Trussville Entertainment District stage, where all musical performances and admissions are free.
Party of the Year, the all-hits party band from the producers of the Black Jacket Symphony, is the headliner for the two-night festival. The incredible performance features Top 40 hits from the 60s through today, along with the same great production that fans of the Black Jacket Symphony have come to expect.
The lineup that immediately followed Party of the Year included Trussville singer/songwriter Alli Leighann, Brad Ryan & Man’s Best Friend, the winner of Trussville Civic Center’s August 28 Battle of the Bands, and more.
This year’s event kicked off with Tune-Up for City Fest, presented by Brown Automotive, on Friday, September 10. The featured act that evening, Artie Dean Harris & Bourbontown, was voted Kentucky’s #1 Country Rock Party Band and shared the stage with Blake Shelton, Faith Hill, and more.
