Right now at DeSoto Caverns, our team is working hard to prep for our 2nd Annual Home Sweet Home, a Food & Music Festival. We are eagerly awaiting the event, which will take place on June 30 & July 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
For many families across the United States, Independence Day is much more than just another day off work. It’s a time to honor the unity and freedom our Nation stands for. It’s also a time to cherish those closest to you.
Between the flashy fireworks and tasty barbeque, it is easy to overlook the reason we celebrate. We want to bring light to our country’s journey to get to this point in history. Too frequently we fail to remember the members of our military who put their lives on the line for our incredible nation so that some of us never had to. Independence Day is a day for all Americans to stand as one and show their pride. There really is something so powerful about millions of people standing together and embracing our country's unity.
We invite you to join us in fostering new memories with your family and friends while celebrating the freedom our Nation represents. This is the perfect time to commemorate our country’s past, present, and future through friendship, entertainment, and cuisine.
As we’re preparing for the second round of Home Sweet Home, we’re reflecting on all the fantastic memories made last year. We were thrilled with last years turnout, and know none of it would have been possible without our wonderful vendors, performers, staff, and guests. However, our most treasured remembrance from last year’s event was seeing all the smiling faces and the memories being made. Sometimes the best things in life are the memories you make with the people you love—and this is exactly what we want our guests to take away from Home Sweet Home.
This year, our park will be bursting with lively entertainment from passionate performers and artists as well as delectable treats from local food trucks.
Last year guests enjoyed fantastic performances from Jessica Baker, Keegan Bost, and Casey Thrasher—and we can’t wait to have them accompany us once again! We are also thrilled to have two additional musicians, Justin Cross and Tayllor Hanson, performing this year. Learn more about our artists and listen to samples of their music here.
We are ecstatic to have Todd Key, who is always a crowd-pleaser with his unbelievable juggling while on stilts skills, perform again. This year, comedy and entertainment expert Carrie McQueen will be joining in on the fun. These two are a duo you won’t want to miss.
You can take a break from the heat and delight in savory food from Chick-Fil-A, Nelchie’s Cajun or Cabrone’s Tacos, or indulge in a refreshing treat from the Repicci’s Italian Ice & Gelato truck.
Whether it’s the tunes drifting throughout the park, the divine smells of local food trucks or the mind-blowing acts from our numerous entertainers, there is something for every member of the family to enjoy! We look forward to seeing you at DeSoto Caverns July 30th - July 1st. Home Sweet Home will certainly make for a memorable Independence Day spent celebrating our country’s freedom.
