THE VENUE :


The Foothills Festival was formed in 1997 and was continuous until 2000. Named for Jasper being in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, this festival strives to provide a weekend of fun that celebrates community and cultural heritage. In 2013, the City of Jasper brought the festival back FREE for a new generation to enjoy. This past year, Jasper hosted 12,000-14,000 attendees at the Foothills Festival. The 2017 Foothills Festival was held September 15-16.
Our Goals
Provide a free festival our community can enjoy
Encourage a safe and fun environment for all individuals
Provide a venue that showcases arts, crafts, nonprofits and businesses
Provide entertainment that connects to the culture of the region


2018 Foothills Festival

Due to the public demand, the festival again took place in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017!

This festival could not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors.

In addition to 11 great performances, many visited some of our arts, crafts, information, business and activity booths!

We are now planning our 2018 event to be held Friday, Sept. 7th and Saturday, 8th, 2018!

Robert Randolph, SteelDrivers to headline Foothills

....Baker, who has been an agent for 17 years and is also a sales consultant for the Eagle, said Randolph will draw many visitors from outside Jasper.

"It's one of the most unbelievable things you will ever see. He is the Hendrix of the pedal steel guitar, and everyone in the whole band is his family," he said. "It is really a killer. And Taylor actually knows Robert, so he will get up and jam with him, play harmonica and that sort of thing."

He called Randolph's music a mix of blues and soul. "The whole things flows really soulful and I think it will bring a cool demographic to the downtown area," Baker said.

Hicks, a native of Birmingham, will play just before Randolph. He is one of the most recognizable acts on the bill, as he won the fifth season of American Idol. He became known for his energetic stage performances as well, combining classic rock, blues and R&B. His followers are known as the Soul Patrol.

He played on Broadway in 2008 in Grease as Teen Angel, continuing on with the national tour. He also secured a long-term residency in Las Vegas.

"He's a heck of a performer," Baker said.
