Stone Mountain gearing up for music festival

Posted: Updated:

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. (AP) - More than 100 artists are set to be featured in the fourth annual Stone Mountain Village Blue Grass Music and Arts Festival.

Stone Mountain Main Street Spokeswoman Susan Ryles says the city's revitalization group has partnered with the Southeastern Bluegrass Association and others to showcase professional and self-taught artists between March 23 and 24.

The event will feature two stages on either end of Main Street, food and a children's play area. Ryles says musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments to play in "jam spots" throughout the event.

Ryles says between 3,000 and 5,000 visitors are expected at this year's free event.
