Hot Springs gearing up for 1st French Broad River Festival since 2019

4 min read

HOT SPRINGS – Though organizers of one of Madison County’s most anticipated festivals of the year deliberated about whether to postpone the event, it will still go on as planned.

French Broad River Festival will take place Oct. 1-3 on the Hot Springs Resort & Spa campgrounds. The three-day event will mark the first festival since 2019.

During a typical year, the festival features live music, a raft race and numerous kid-friendly events.

Matt Kern, one of the festival’s co-organizers, has been involved with FBRF since 1998. 

According to Kern, the festival team was intentional about providing as many kid-centric activities as possible. 

“At the point when we all started, we were all single guys,” he said. “Nobody was married and nobody had kids. Then as we progressed, and the festival had progressed, we made a conscious effort to make it very kid-friendly about 16-17 years ago.”
