Join the City of Ocoee for a celebration of its 20th Annual Founders’ Day Festival. A stand out lineup featuring headliner Travis Tritt will bring country music to the stage on Friday, November 8 and Saturday, November 9, 2013. The free two-day event will take place at Bill Breeze Park, 125 North Lakeshore Drive.
Travis Tritt will be headlining the concerts on Saturday. Tritt was one of the leading new country singers of the early ’90s, holding his own against Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson. He was the only one not to wear a hat and the only one to dip into bluesy Southern rock. Consequently, he developed a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. Throughout the early ’90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top Ten singles, including three number one hits.
On Friday, Montgomery Gentry will headline the concerts. Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry are poised to stake their claim as one of country music’s all-time greatest duos. They hit the national scene in 1999 with the defiant “Hillbilly Shoes.” Since then, the duo has sold millions of albums, sold out shows and won numerous awards.
In addition to the concerts that will feature several local acts, families can enjoy a wide variety of fun activities including carnival rides, a spectacular fireworks show, games, food vendors, arts ‘n crafts at the Marketplace, family fishing tournament, classic car show, Chick-fil-A 5k and Kids Fun Run benefitting STARS (Supplies to Assist Our Students) and much more.
