6th Annual Hoptown Summer Salute

We invite you to join thousands of visitors for the 6th Annual Summer Salute Festival in downtown Hopkinsville, Kentucky.  A fun filled 2-day live entertainment music festival with national headliners, attracting guests and locals to family fun, children rides/activities, food and merchant vendors and a variety of attractions that make this event a true gem of the south, in beautiful downtown Hopkinsville! Winner of IFEA’s prestigious Pinnacle Award as best festival event of its kind in the WORLD.  The Jimmy Church Band headlines Friday night, 6 p.m. Saturday night headliner will be KC and The Sunshine Band coming to Hopkinsville.  The festival runs Friday, August 26, 2022 – Saturday, August 27, 2022, 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.  Admission is FREE for visitors, and they will want to purchase food and crafts.
After a total sold out vendor footprint in 2021, Summer Salute is now clearly a summertime “must do” for vendors and attendees. With a phenomenal headliner locked in for spring announcement, the 2022 festival will lift Summer Salute to yet another new level and attract attendance from a 100-mile or more. The addition of another Friday night stage for youth will offer even more musical variety and bring a crowd that rivals previous Saturday night finales.
Make your plans to attend, or be a vendor for Summer Salute 2022. We’ve also modified the festival footprint for max vendor space all along 9th Street and expansion of the Kids Zone as it moves to Founders Square. Nothing will heat up this summer quite like this expanded festival. Remember, music and kids activities are FREE with a new youth expanded ride option for a nominal fee this year. It’s music. It’s food. It’s rides and games. It’s music galore. It’s family fun in a party wrapper – Summer Salute!
For additional information or for those interested in becoming a food or merchant vendor, visit our web site, www.hoptownrec.com with the registration forms being on our homepage or under forms, or www.hoptownsummersalute.com, with additional information to be added in the near future.  Follow Parks and Recreation on Facebook or call 270-887-4290.  See you in 2022 for Hopkinsville’s largest party of the summer and biggest event of the year!
