An undercurrent of excitement is running through the town of Cashiers in anticipation of the debut of The Cashiers Mountain Music Festival on July 4, 2009. Developed by the dedicated team at the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce, this inaugural Independence Day event will be hosted at the Village Green and will benefit local area Youth Musical Education.

Recently named as Festival Director, Mark Wise – a local resident and veteran entertainment producer – has long dreamed of a world-class music festival in Cashiers. Wise has produced shows for Walt Disney World Entertainment and Universal Studios Florida, and understands the careful planning required for such a special event. The festival will include performances by The Isaacs – with their eclectic blend of bluegrass, gospel and country music – and will culminate in a breathtaking fireworks display. Additional performers will be announced at a later date. Event parking and admission for children five and under will be free. Children aged 6 -12 will be admitted for $5, and general admission for adults will be $20.

Mark your calendars and plan to join your neighbors for a great day that promises music and fun for the whole family!
