The Demopolis Area Chamber of Commerce watches weather conditions as they prepare for the Highway 80 Songwriter’s Festival that will be held Saturday, July 6 between 6-10 p.m.

“The festival will continue on regardless of the rain,” said Jenn Tate, executive director of Demopolis Area Chamber of Commerce. “We will just be watching the weather to know if we have to move locations.”

In case of inclement weather conditions, the festival will be moved to the Marengo Theater located at 219 E Washington St. in downtown Demopolis. If the weather conditions are clear, the location will remain at the Demopolis downtown square.

Tate stated that they will announce around 2-3 p.m. on the day of the festival if the location will change to the Marengo Theater or stay at its original location.

“We will announce it on facebook and try to get the word around.” said Tate. “We’re not going to let a little rain stop us.”

The songwriters and artists that will be playing at the festival are Bedhed & Blondy, Steven Padilla, Steve Wilkerson, Amy Lott, Richelle Putnam, Debbie Bond and Rick Asherton, Joey Etheridge, Old Southwest, Britt Gully, Jill Tutt and Byron Fry, Frank Fields and Mike Rogers, Alan Hartzell, James Edwards, John Paul Dove, Blaine Duncan, Terry Cherry and Bee Peterson and Jeremy Dixon.
