The Rally Round Greenville festival is slated to begin Friday, September 19 with a Kick-Off Concert, featuring Billy Joe Shaver.

The Kenneth Threadgill Concert, to take place Saturday, September 20, will feature Guy Clark, Terri Hendrix and Max Stalling.

The three day event will also include the OmniSYS Cotton Patch Classic Bicycle Race and Tour, a barbeque and chili cook off, as well as food and arts and crafts vendors.
