2014 Beulahfest Set To Feature Country and Southern Rock Royalty On Stage
By: Kelly Woodard

The 28
th Annual Beulahfest is gearing up for a big weekend next Friday and Saturday, March 21st and 22nd with plenty of great entertainment, food, and fun for all.
Formally known as the Beulah Sausage Festival, the event has gone through some changes over the past few years. Traditionally held on the farm land of Jim and Joyce Whaley, the event committee was forced to make a change in location due to growing crowds, parking problems, and county requirements.
Now held at the Escambia County Equestrian Center, located at 7750 Mobile Highway, the newly named ‘Beulahfest’ hasn’t lost its’ original charm. The move to the ECEC has provided answers to parking problems and much more space to grow. It provides a covered arena for the stage and entertainers, and covered stalls for crafters.
Sausage is still provided by Thompson, and comes in two flavors. The monies raised are still largely donated to charities and others in need. Each year our goal is to raise money for those charities and provide funds needed for firefighter training and recruitment.
This year, Beulahfest is featuring some of country music’s biggest acts such as the Charlie Daniel’s Band, Randy Houser, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and hometown cutie and America’s Got Talent Star, Chloe Channell.
Beulahfest not only has great live entertainment, crafters and vendors, but great rides as well, including a mechanical bull and roller coaster ride. All rides are furnished by the James Gang Amusements.
Doors open at 4 pm on Friday, March 15th and festivities begin at 4:15 pm with the Opening Ceremonies. Tickets are available in advance or at the door. Advanced tickets are $15 for a one day pass, or $26 for a weekend pass.
