Hosted by Drew and Ellie Holcomb, Moon River Music Festival showcases a lively group of musicians. This year headliners included The National and Leon Bridges. Also performing were Mat Kearney, Zach Bryan, and Briston Maroney to name a few. While Moon River is already tempting for music lovers, the fact that it calls Chattanooga home makes it even more appealing for those familiar with the Scenic City.
Where else can you enjoy incredible music, food, and drinks with this view?
Moon River is held over two days in Coolidge Park with a beautiful view of both the Tennessee River and the Chattanooga Walking Bridge.
There were two main stages called Iris and Poplar with performances non-stop from around lunch time till after the moon was high overhead.
For all the parents out there wondering… Moon River is a family-friendly atmosphere. Up to 2 kids 10 years or younger get in free with a ticket holding adult.
The dates for next year have already been announced as September 9th and 10th so be on the lookout for when tickets become available. There are options for 1 or both days with general admission as well as VIP and “Coolidge Club” if you’re feeling extra fancy. You can check the website for announcements here. Another of the (many) great things about Moon River Music Festival is that a portion of every ticket supports Outdoor Chattanooga and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Pro tip: I recommend registering for Moon River’s text or email group. This year bad weather unfortunately affected the second day of the festival. However, everyone on the text list was notified immediately of the changes and updated regarding the new venue.
Moon River hasn’t seen the last of me. Chattanooga was my first home away from home and I jump at any opportunity to return.
