With loosened crowd restrictions for public events and more people receiving COVID-19 vaccines, organizations in Clarksville are hoping to once again offer outdoor entertainment for locals and visitors.

The Clarksville Lake Country Chamber of Commerce has set April 10 as the date for the return of the Clarksville Lake Country Wine Festival, which was canceled in 2020.

Clarksville Town Manager Jeff Jones said this year’s Wine Festival will be a little different, for crowd control purposes.

Anyone wishing to attend must purchase a ticket for either a morning or afternoon session. Tickets will go on sale at the end of March. The morning session runs from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and the afternoon session from 3-6 p.m. The hour in between will be used to clean and sanitize the event space. This year’s festival will take place next to The Delicate Flower Bed and Breakfast at 617 Virginia Avenue in downtown Clarksville.

There will be musical entertainment throughout the day by either the Tobacco Road Band or the acoustic duo of Jeff & Brian. There will also be food and artwork for sale and a Slingshot cruise-in.

Wine Fest goers must be 21 or older to attend.

Members of Clarksville Economic Development Committee (CEDA) are also hopeful that the Lake Life Live concert series can return to Clarksville.

Bands are already scheduled to perform. The first concert is set May 1 with North Tower. Gates open at 5 p.m. and music begins at 6 p.m.

The next concert is set June 5 with Feature Attraction and the Konnection Band. Gates for this concert open at 3 p.m. with music beginning at 4 p.m.

On July 3 the Band of Oz will perform for concert goers and Blackwater Band will be in town on Aug. 7. Once again, gates open at 5 p.m. and the music begins at 6 p.m. for both concerts.

The Labor Day weekend brings both The Embers featuring Craig Woolard and JB & The Get Down Browns to the Lake Life Live concert stage starting at 4 p.m. Gates open at 3 p.m.

The final concert of the 2021 summer concert series seasons will feature Cat5 Band. It’s set for Oct. 2 starting at 6 p.m.

All concerts for the Lake Life Live from Clarksville Summer series take place on the stage at the corner of Fifth Street and Virginia Avenue. Admission is $5.
