A Laid Back Hillbilly Night

April 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Pikeville, KY, is a small town in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. It is a place where people still wave to each other on the street, and the pace of life is slower than in big cities. One of the events that celebrates the local culture is the “Laid Back Hillbilly Night,” which is held annually during Hillbilly Days.

Hillbilly Days is a festival that takes place in Pikeville every year in April, and it is a celebration of the region’s heritage. The festival includes a carnival, live music, and plenty of food and drink. However, the highlight of the event is the “Laid Back Hillbilly Night,” which is a more relaxed and intimate gathering.

During the Laid Back Hillbilly Night, locals and visitors alike gather around a campfire to share stories, sing songs, and enjoy each other’s company. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly, and everyone is welcome. You can bring your own food and drink, or purchase snacks from the nearby vendors.

If you are looking for a unique and authentic experience in Kentucky, the Laid Back Hillbilly Night is not to be missed. It is a chance to slow down, connect with the community, and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. So grab a chair, a drink, and settle in for a night of good company and great music.

Lay back on our couches and chairs or bring your own favorite lounge chairs for this amazing pickin’ event! Also featuring Bek and the Starlight Revue, and Luna and the Mountain Jets. Featuring Cash Bar ($10 cover). Brought to you by the Mountain Grrl Experience.
