The Foothills Festival was formed in 1997 and was continuous until 2000. Named for Jasper being in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, this festival strives to provide a weekend of fun that celebrates community and cultural heritage. In 2013, the City of Jasper brought the festival back FREE for a new generation to enjoy. This past year, Jasper hosted 12,000-14,000 attendees at the Foothills Festival. The 2017 Foothills Festival was held September 15-16.

2018 Foothills Festival

Due to the public demand, the festival again took place in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017! 

This festival could not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors.

In addition to 11 great performances, many visited some of our arts, crafts, information, business and activity booths! 

We are now planning our 2018 event to be held Friday, Sept. 7th and Saturday, 8th, 2018!
