The Uncle Dave Macon Days organizing committee will host the annual volunteer picnic on Thursday, June 14, under the covered pavilion at Cannonsburgh, 312 S. Front St.

This is an opportunity to recognize the hard work of the volunteers who assist with the festival, which will be held July 13-15. The 35th annual event is a celebration of traditional music and dance in middle Tennessee. More than $10,000 in prize money is awarded during the festival’s stage contests.


Additionally, the Jesse Messick Service Award will be presented during the picnic.  This award honors the memory of the late Jesse Messick, a pharmacist on the public square, who started the festival.

The  wings and barbecue are catered by the Slick Pig restaurant in Murfreesboro.

Considered one of America's premier summer festivals, Uncle Dave Macon Days also features children’s activities, concessions, arts and crafts, living- history demonstrations, a historic photo exhibit, shade-tree jamming, gospel singing in the village chapel, a “motorless” parade on Saturday morning at 10 from Central Magnate School down East Main St. toward the county courthouse and ending at the festival grounds and a Sunday Gospel Showcase, featuring shape-note singing and Community Service Fair.
