Foodstock, a day of food, music and art hosted by the City of Somerset and sponsored by Horse Soldier Bourbon, will feature 17 food trucks from Somerset and across the state, as well as nine spirit and drink vendors. As with the first festival, the tastes of the Bluegrass will be complemented with the sounds of local music and the color of local art.

Admission is free and gates will open at noon, with the heart of the festival located at the Pulaski County Judicial Center Plaza. The plaza stage will feature a day full of local and regional music talent, including the Rumpke Mountain BoysCody Lee Meece, Tommy Minton & Friends and the Lake Cumberland Blues Society. Beer, wine and spirit vendors will line Maple Street and East Mt. Vernon, and food trucks and street vendors will fill the half-circle of Fountain Square.

As with all city festivals, patrons who want to purchase alcoholic beverages must purchase a $5 spirit wristband.

We’ll also host the second Foodstock Art Contest, where local, regional and state artists create in real-time and have the opportunity to compete for prize money. This year’s theme is “Community.” Three $1,000 prizes will be awarded to the three artists who best incorporate this theme into their work. A panel of three independent judges will choose the 2021 winners.
