The stage is set for a new music festival on Oct. 3, 2015. Yellow River Jam fills the senses with a unique combination of outdoor adventuring on the Yellow River, live musical performances, football fans and local treats.
Georgia Conservancy kicks off the festivities with a 7-mile paddle down a mellow stretch of the Yellow River. Guides and locals point out wildlife and historic sites along this slow, sandy-bottom section of the river that makes a laid-back trip for families and new paddlers. Pack a picnic to enjoy at one of the scenic stops on the way. Music fills the air as paddlers approach Porterdale’s Yellow River Park. The park is a picturesque place to enjoy the live bands, local foods and brews.
Floating to Yellow River Jam in a canoe or kayak isn’t the only way to get there. Paddle, bike, or drive to Yellow River Park and be greeted with the sounds of music from the riverside stage. Bring your blankets and jam the day away with a variety of local bands including Sweet Harmony, Tedo Stone, and others.
Bring the whole family and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of historic Porterdale. Don’t worry about missing the Georgia-Alabama game! Gather with fans at the Company Store Deli and watch on the big screen, while the kids take on a round of disc golf in the park. The festival also includes a diverse selection of craft beers, as well as an assortment of restaurants and vendors to serve up delicious local fare for hungry paddlers and music lovers.
