Organizers put together three days (Friday, May 17–Sunday, May 19) of festivities surrounding appearances by the cast of the television show “Moonshiners,” including a barbecue cook-off with samples from each contestant, live music, street-bike drag-racing, and, of course, moonshine samples. They also arrange for overnight camping for those attending more than one day of the festival.
Those who purchase a VIP ticket receive an exclusive lunch with the cast to chat and receive autographs. They can also attend private moonshine and beer tastings, sampled in souvenir shot glasses, and gain admittance to the late-night moonshine party.
The cast of Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” are a professionally reclusive bunch, brewing generations-old recipes in camouflaged stills beside their homes. Still, many beyond the hidden hills of Appalachia celebrate their traditions, and their product. The Moonshiner Festival gathers together some of the cast to meet their fans for three days of live music, barbecuing, camping, and, of course, drinking moonshine. Cast members in attendance include Mark Rogers and Jeff Waldroup, Lynn Waldroup and Lance Waldroup, and Mike Lewis and Bobby Tweedy. They dole out autographs and sit down to meals with the festival attendees, possibly even joining in to cut a rug to the musical stylings of the Smoking Guns or Hooch Holler.
