Ready for food and fun? Rural Resources has teamed up with the Dogwood Park Concert Series to present a fabulous time on Sunday, August 21 from 4 to 7:30pm at Dogwood Park (located directly behind Tusculum View Elementary school at 1725 Lafayette Street in Greeneville.)
The event is FREE. Now why, you might ask, is RR teaming up with our Dogwood Park friends? We at RR are all about connecting EVERYONE to local food and we figure music and fun and food all go together. It's as simple as that.
Food line up: shishkabobs with juicy chunks of local beef and yummy local veggies cooked right in front of you on the grill, ice cold watermelon, and lots of water, lemonade and tea!
Gettin' down to the music:
Richard Spain & “WA WA” Bean classic country
The Fugitives pop country
Tim White & the VW Boys bluegrass, talking banjos, laughter
The Roys from Nashville, TN: Brother and sister Lee and Elaine are on their way to the top with good, old fashioned, honest music that will touch your heart.
For the kids:corn hole, watermelon seed spitting contest, egg on the spoon races, hog calling contest. Prizes.
Our sponsors: Tennessee Arts Commission, East Tennessee Foundation, Gateway Ford, Tri City Beverage, The City of Greeneville, Greeneville Parks and Recreation, Graysburg Hills Farm, Snapps Ferry Packing, Pop Corn Video, and a host of volunteers who make this event possible and FREE

"Where can I purchase local food?" you might ask...we say, "Right here, through the Mobile Farmers' Market!" The Mobile Farmers' Market delivers produce from the Rural Resources Garden, the Farm and Food Teen Training Program, and local growers in East Tennessee!
Think fresh, juicy fruits! Think vegetables full of life and taste! Think flavorful, nutritious meats like beef, pork! Think delicious, homemade casseroles, pies, and pizzas. The great thing about the Mobile Farmers' Market is the convenience. We deliver to the City of Greeneville.
