NON-STOP LIVE MUSIC OVER TWO AWESOME DAYS, AT HERITAGE PARK
This will be the second annual music festival of its kind in Sulphur Springs, Texas, featuring seventeen bands of eclectic genres, playing virtually non-stop Friday, October 11 (doors at 4pm) and Saturday, October 12 (doors at 11am). For VIP ticket-holders, there will also be music an dinner for an additional pre-party evening on Thursday, October 10, at Mama's Place. This year's festival will be held inside beautiful, historic Heritage Park, which is located just a couple of blocks off of Celebration Plaza, downtown Sulphur Springs. Each year, Texafied JamFest will designate a charity/charities to receive festival profits. The organizations to benefit this year are Be The Match, a national bone marrow donor registry (in honor of our own Michael B. Moore, battling stage 4 lymphoma), and Main Street Theatre, Sulphur Springs' own downtown community theatre, bringing quality performing arts to the Northeast Texas area.
PARKING & SHUTTLES
There is ample parking at the venue, but should overflow be necessary, the downtown plaza has more space and is an easy couple of blocks away. Additionally, for those guests staying in the local hotels, our downtown trolley is no longer available. BUT, we are working on other options to eliminate the necessity to drive - like Uber, tipsy-taxi, maybe some passenger vans with drivers from last year's trolley, etc.

FESTIVAL EATS & SIPS
As if the music isn't enough on its own, there will be lots of food and drink to pick from at Texafied JamFest!

Beer will also be available, as well as wine from Sulphur Springs' own Phinesse Farms Winery. All food and drink will be priced a la carte, per each vendor's discretion.
RESPECT OUR HERITAGE
The Hopkins County Museum and Heritage Park is an official, historic location. Please keep out of any building or body of water that isn't open to the public - most of them WILL NOT be - except for restrooms and, at times, the General Store. Garbage receptacles will be plentiful throughout the venue, so please use them. A portion of each TJF ticket will go to the park, so purchasing the usual park admission ticket will not be necessary.
If you have questions that haven't been answered by the information on this page, please visit the home page and submit your concern(s) via the available "Questions?" form. The most common question so far - seating. Please bring lawn chairs, blankets, etc., for seating, as only limited chairs will be available at the venue, and it is all general admission, lawn seating.
