ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Chehaw is usually a pretty quiet place, but music will fill the air this weekend.
Over 10 bands will be performing for the annual Briar Patch Music Festival.
The festival is usually held in Damascus, but the area was damaged by storms in January.
There will be a few different genres highlighted, including rock and country.
This festival gives visitors a chance to camp in their RVs or tents and relax while enjoying the scenery that Chehaw has to offer.
"We're excited to be able to help these guys out, and bring them out here with our stage. This is exactly why we built this stage, to give people in the community a chance to hold their events out here," said Morgan Burnette, Director of Community Engagement.
Attendees are allowed to bring in your own chairs, coolers and food.
Beverages will also be for sale during the festival.
Tickets are $20 for a day pass or $30 for the weekend.
