MAY 6, 7, & 8








Festival in the Valley

Music, Car Show, Art Exhibition, Race, Food, & Fun

Wow, something new for 2022.  Valley Fest is adding a new event on Friday, May 6, a Welcome Home Concert for Vets, presented by Freedom Sings USA, honoring Veterans from Vietnam to Afghanistan. Visit

On May 6, 7, and 8, 2022 we will look forward to greeting you at the BTC Fiber Optics Valley Fest!  This is our eleventh festival, and admission will be free.  You’re going to love our outdoor three-day musical festival in Dunlap, Tennessee.  Bring a comfortable lawn chair or reserve seating here.  Dunlap is a friendly town that knows how to throw a great outdoor party.  The music you’ll hear at this festival will be diverse, eclectic, and electric…all kinds of musical genres.  No matter what kind of music you love, you’ll have a great time.  Select the schedule for detailed information about the performers.

On Thursday, May 5, jump-start Valley Fest by attending a reception for 40 local artists at the 2022 Art & the Library Exhibition, 103 Heard Street, Dunlap, from 6-8 CT.  It’s free and refreshments will be served.  You’ll be delighted by the works you’ll see.  The exhibition continues, on May 6-7, noon to 7 pm CT, May 8, noon to 5 pm CT.  On Saturday, May 8 at 8 am CT, start your weekend off with a heart-pumping run/walk with your friends and family.  The beautiful Sequatchie Valley course is mostly flat and will make for a great opportunity to hit your best 5k time yet.  This year’s race is sponsored and coordinated by MaxFit.  Carry on with the fun by attending the car show, Saturday morning from 9-noon CT.  Musical performances resume at 1:00 pm CT Saturday.

When your feet tire from tapping, you can sample food as diverse as the music. From food tasting like a good grandma cooked it to funnel cakes and all the good fair food.  Yes, of course, there will be lots of BBQ!

It’s a family outing with a Kids’ Zone, rides, inflatables, face painting, an exquisite petting zoo…plenty for the kids.  Everything you do will take place against the backdrop of the beautiful Sequatchie Valley.

Come once and you’re sure to come back!

Friday, May 6, 2022 Noon to 9:00 pm CDT  |  Saturday, May 7, 2022 9:00 am to 9:00 pm CDT  |  Sunday, May 8, 2022 10:00 am to 5:00 pm CDT
