WARTBURG, Tenn. – Enjoy the Night Sky Celebration as you gaze up at the expansive twinkling stars and constellations 6-9:30 p.m. Nov. 3 on the Nemo Bridge at Obed Wild & Scenic River, a designated International Dark Sky Park.
The event will feature music by the Knox County Jug Stompers who produce a curious and blend of old-time string band, country blues, and jug band music and delicious barbecue under the stars. The Jug Stompers play a variety of instruments including banjo, washtub bass, washboard, guitar, mandolin, and fiddle.
The Obed Wild & Scenic River in Tennessee is an International Dark Sky Park. Obed Wild & Scenic River is now the second National Park Service unit east of the Mississippi River to earn the International Dark Sky Park designation and the 20th U.S. National Park Service unit to do so. The park preserves natural nighttime darkness over one of the last free-flowing wild river systems in the eastern United States.
This is a causal, outdoor event so guests should wear layered clothing, fold up seating and a flashlight with red lighting or covered with red cellophane.
Parking will be provided in Wartburg with a Shuttle service to the bridge (about 14 minutes). More information on parking location will be provided closer to the event.
Tickets are $25 and available here. Tickets will be available the day of the event with cash or check.
