Wetumpka announces new music festival

Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce announces its plans for a large scale music festival, Wetumpka Craterfest to be held on Saturday April 20th, 2013. This event will replace the former Riverfest with a stronger focus on attracting tourism to the area while maintaining the community aspect with a children's area and offering the event at no cost with the help of sponsorships from community businesses.

Country music recording artist, Keith Anderson who is best known for his Billboard chart topping hit song, "Picking Wildflowers" will be the headline act, sponsored by Creek Casino of Wetumpka. Announcements regarding support acts, sponsorship and vender applications will be available in the coming weeks.

"We saw this as a great opportunity to brand Wetumpka's rare treasure and story of the impact crater, that only we can tell here in the Eastern United States by changing the name to Wetumpka Craterfest" says Vanessa Lynch, Executive Director of the WACC. Future plans will involve more lectures, a possible science fair and related activities that educate and bring attention to the Wetumpka Impact Crater.

"We were thrilled to have the blessing and support from the Crater Commission and are looking forward to another great event in Wetumpka to bring the community together for fun and entertainment, while drawing attention to Wetumpka from outside the area" says Lynch.

More details and announcements will be posted soon on the chamber's website at www.wetumpkachamber.org.
