Senoia Social concert, festival returning July 5

by Sarah Fay Campbell

The Southern Ground Senoia Social is returning.

The second annual day-long event will be held July 5 in downtown Senoia.

The downtown “block party” will feature live music, merchants and vendors, a beer garden and a family fun kid zone.

It’s a fundraiser for Camp Southern Ground, which is being built in Fayette County. Camp Southern Ground will be a summer camp for children of all abilities, with a special focus on children with autism and other neurobehavioral disorders.

Camp Southern Ground is a project of country music star Zac Brown, who also owns the Southern Ground Social Club in downtown Senoia.

The social will run from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Senoia’s Main Street, and the party then will move inside the Southern Ground Social Club until 2 a.m.

There will be eight bands performing during the event, according to Chris Sherrer with Southern Ground. The list of performers will be announced soon.

There will be unique offerings of food, music, beverages and shopping, as well as the Kid Zone, Sherrer said.

Last year’s event drew thousands of people to downtown Senoia.

Because parking is limited, shuttle service will be provided from Leroy Johnson Park on Howard Road in Senoia and Starr’s Mill Academy daycare center in Peachtree City.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available, Sherrer said.
