No one can deny the foot-stomping sounds of Dueling Banjos from the 1972 film Deliverance. Can you believe that film is celebrating it's 40th Anniversary this year? And what better place to celebrate than at the Chattooga River Festival held in the Upcountry of South Carolina later this month.
With events in Long Creek, South Carolina and Clayton, Georgia, the festival runs June 22-24 and features events including:
*deliverance. redemption. salvation. artist's reception
*Ronny Cox Band Show
*Banjo Boogie Hills 'n Chills Fun Run
*Guided Whitewater Rafting with local outfitters including Nantahala Outdoor Center and Wildwater Ltd
*Chattooga Belle Farm Music Festival + Artisan Village
*Dueling Banjos Competition
*Warner Brothers 40th Anniversary Deliverance Premiere

What a great way to celebrate an American theatrical institution and an American environmental institution at the same time. Grab your paddle, hiking boots, and banjo and meet us on the river!
