Where It All Began

When the event first began in 1999, it was called “Flowood Family Picnic” and was held at Winner’s Circle Park. Suzy Bogguss was the first headlining artist for this new event, and artists including Brad Paisley, Steve Azar, and more took to the Winner’s Circle stage in the following years. The Winner’s Circle Park amphitheater was not made to fit 1,000 people, but the event always attracted well over that number.

By 2003, the Flowood Family Picnic grew into the name “Flowood Family Festival,” and by 2008, the event widely outgrew its venue too, resulting in the festival being hosted every year since at Flowood Liberty Park. The new venue was comprised of Flowood’s baseball and soccer fields, a hotspot for sports tournaments year-round, but Liberty Park also proved to be the perfect spot to host thousands of visitors, dozens of local food vendors, countless kid’s activities, and still have room for a large outdoor concert.

The event continues to grow with each year as several thousand visitors travel to Liberty Park each year to listen to their favorite artists under the stars and enjoy the welcoming, small-town feel of Flowood.
