Lawrenceville Introduces Harvest Festival at the Lawrenceville Lawn on November 6

Harvest Fest

See Runaway June, Lainey Wilson, Kat & Alex, and Dirty Grass Soul Live this Fall.                                      

The City of Lawrenceville announces the fall Harvest Festival to take place at the Lawrenceville Lawn this November. Sponsored by Consolidated Pipe & Supply Company, Inc., Camp Gladiator, and Kona Ice, the Harvest Festival will bring together live entertainment by four exciting country acts, fun and games for kids, and festive fall activities for the whole family. Enjoy hayrides around the square, a petting zoo with over 20 animals, pumpkin painting station, and food from a variety of vendors. On November 6, festivities will run from 1 pm – 8 pm at the Lawrenceville Lawn. 

Guests can catch Harvest Festival headliner Runaway June on the Lawrenceville Lawn stage. Runaway June is Sass, heartbreak and reinvention – Runaway June’s identity was chiseled with steadfast grit through years of perseverance amid a male-dominated country genre. With female empowerment at the forefront of their song catalog, the trio is embracing their future and are invigorated by what’s to come. And, with a live show as electrifying as it is captivating – the trio’s fiery bluegrass sound and high-energy, girl-power attitude is always front and center. There’s no wonder, they’ve been invited to perform at Stagecoach, C2C Country To Country, and on some of the biggest tours in country music, opening for superstars like Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Luke Bryan and Carrie Underwood.

Lainey Wilson, one of Country music’s most promising young stars, will also hit the stage at Lawrenceville’s Harvest Festival. Lainey has fast become one of Nashville’s most buzzed about newcomers thanks to a fiery live show and prolific songwriting. Combining her on-stage swagger with memorable storytelling Wilson recently scored her first country radio hit with “Things A Man Oughta Know” as well as an opening slot on Jason Aldean’s Back In The Saddle tour. On the Jay Joyce-produced Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’, the Louisiana native’s debut album on BBR Music Group’s flagship imprint, Broken Bow Records, Wilson boldly introduces herself as a country artist unafraid to speak her truth while empowering listeners to do the same through her vulnerability. It is music with a message, delivered subtly and humbly.

The Lawrenceville Lawn stage will also feature the Nashville-based duo, Kat & Alex. The husband-and-wife pair shake up country with full-bodied soulful delivery, inventive live instrumentation, and bilingual lyrics, introducing themselves as outliers with just the right amount of outlaw glee. They appeared on American Idol before returning home to focus on writing and recording original music. Amassing nearly 20 million streams independently and receiving acclaim from Billboard, CMT, and more, they introduced a scorching signature style in 2021 with new music for Sony Music Nashville. Kat & Alex are sure win your heart as they embody classic country stylings and values and rewrite the rules altogether with a Latino twist.

Dirty Grass Soul will perform their unique tunes for Harvest Festival goers. With a sound that draws much influence from traditional music of the North Carolina foothills, Dirty Grass Soul manages to bring a new, refreshed, and re-energized sound to their music that falls somewhere between country, bluegrass and southern rock & roll reminiscent of acts like The Charlie Daniels Band and The Marshall Tucker Band. Whether it is the hint of bluegrass, outlaw country, or rock & roll you hear in each song, their sound is uniquely Dirty Grass Soul. From Dedmon's catchy originals, to their own twist on covers ranging from a variety of artists and styles, Dirty Grass Soul is sure to offer a little something for everyone.

Visitors are also encouraged to check out the many restaurants and shops around the square. Additional information can be found at  Detailed food truck information will be posted on the City’s social media platforms the week of the event.

While the Lawrenceville Harvest Festival is a FREE event, sponsorships starting at $500 are available by calling 678.407.6653.   Please follow the city’s Facebook page and The DTL Instagram page for the latest event information.
