Craig Morgan to headline Greene County Summer Fest

Country music superstar Craig Morgan will headline the 3rd annual Caesar’s Ford Summer Fest.

Greene County Parks and Trails department announced today the “Redneck Yacht Club” and “That’s What I Love About Sunday” artist will perform on the fest’s final night ahead of a fireworks finale.

On Saturday, doors open at 3 p.m. before Justin Bryan goes on at 4:30 p.m., Karen Waldrup at 6:30 p.m. and finally, Craig Morgan at 8:30 p.m.

“Caesar Ford Summer Fest is a great example of the exciting things happening in your backyard,” said Jon Dobney, Greene County Parks and Trails director. “Even though we are going into the 3rd annual Summer Fest, this is just the beginning”

The classic car show returns Saturday, with details soon to come on official times for the show.

The Summer Fest began in 2018 as a welcoming back for the community to Caesar Ford Park after over a decade of being padlocked. The 270-acre property, located at 210 Stringtown Road, Xenia, includes a renovated amphitheater for outdoor drama performances, a new disc-golf course and trails for hiking.

All Summer Fest concerts will take place in the Caesar Ford Amphitheater. Following a popular 2019 selection of beer vendors, Hanna Lamb, Greene County Parks and Trails marketing specialist, said the beer garden near the amphitheater will include games like corn hole and giant Jenga. Beer vendors will be announced closer to Summer Fest.

Ticket prices range from $30 to $80 and are available for one day or both days and will go on sale beginning January 17. Tickets can be purchased at gcparkstrails.com.
