Mom’s Music Fest returns to Waynesville

The outdoor Mom’s Music Festival will be held from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, in Waynesville, featuring a line-up of bands and activities to celebrate moms.

Put on by WOW, the Women of Waynesville, in conjunction with the Haywood Regional Medical Center Foundation, the event will raise money for the Power of Pink, which provides free mammogram screenings for underserved women.

Bands include Smoke Rise, Tarnished Rose, Bohemian Jean, Cherokee Thunder and DJ Ogre of Dizzy Records. There will be vendors, food, local breweries and a kids area with a bouncy house, arts and crafts, small petting zoo and the Waynesville Fire Department.

“It’s been so fun putting this event into production again,” says Nikki White, President of WOW. “The Mom’s Music Festival is going to get bigger and better every year.”

The festival offers a safe, fun area for children to play while moms kick back on a blanket.

The Mom’s Music Festival will be held on behind The Herren House and Bridgets Bistro on East Street in Waynesville, one block from Main Street. It is a cash-only event.
