The well-known 1970s party band The Village People and country/Bluegrass artist Ricky Skaggs will perform in Oak Ridge this summer as part of the Secret City Festival.
The Village People will perform hits such as “YMCA” and “In the Navy” during their June 17 concert. Skaggs will perform on June 18.
“Offering musicians in different genres helps the festival attract more people,” said Joye Montgomery, entertainment coordinator and head of the Arts Council of Oak Ridge.
“Bringing larger, diverse crowds and new visitors to Oak Ridge is an excellent way for the Secret City Festival to enhance the economic growth of the city during the festival weekend,” she added.
Festival coordinator Jane Gibson recognized festival sponsors, volunteers and programs that were recently awarded multiple Kaleidoscope Awards during the Southeast Festivals and Events Conference in Stone Mountain, Ga.
During the awards program, top festivals and events throughout the Southeast were recognized for their outstanding contributions to the festivals and events industry.
The Secret City Festival received six awards in all, including the Silver Award for Best Festival.
