The dedicated crew of the beloved Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park sprang to life in a most impressive manner after Hurricane Irma ravaged the state of Florida during the beginning of September. Following the storm, the park filled with the sounds of chainsaws, debris clearing trucks, smokey burn piles, and, most impressively, laughter. Though some of the staff still had no electricity at home, everyone at the park worked feverishly to get Suwannee back to a fully operational state. The clean-up crew’s round-the-clock efforts paid off, and the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park was open and receiving guests just a couple of days after the biggest hurricane on record tore through the state.
With the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park back in action, we can’t wait for the musical madness that will be going down in the coming weeks. The communal love at the park is what makes it the perfect venue for the many events it hosts, such as the upcoming Suwannee Roots Revival from October 12th to 15th, and the epic Suwannee Hulaween hosted by the String Cheese Incident, which will be going down from October 27th through 29th!
