The award-winning Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion isn’t just a music festival. It’s an infectious, three-day music experience, bursting with creative passion, electricity, and soul--a celebration of Bristol's heritage as the Birthplace of Country Music. Every third weekend in September, State Street in historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA is amped to the beat of Appalachia’s past, present and future. The Reunion offers 22 stages of live music that include four outdoor stages, a dance tent, 16 indoor venues and a children’s stage on Saturday for a free event for families on Saturday from 9am-1pm. The best part, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion is among the most affordable music festivals around!
