The Obed National Park and Morgan County Tourism Alliance have partnered together in bringing this fundraising event on the bridge to the community.

Come and join in the celebration on Nemo Bridge and experience the Obed National Dark Sky Park, with great music, bbq and of course the the stars.

The Music-Hailing from the foothills of the Smokey Mountains, the Knox County Jug Stompers produce a curious and exciting blend of old-time string band, country blues, and jug band music. The Jug Stompers’ instrumentation features  banjo, washtub bass, washboard, guitar, mandolin, banjolele, and fiddle. The group currently boasts the title of champion of the Southern Living International Biscuit Festival songwriting competition from 2013-15.

The National Park Service and IDA International Dark Sky Association are pleased to announce that Obed Wild & Scenic River (WSR) in Tennessee, U.S., has been designated an International Dark Sky Park. With this designation, Obed WSR is now the second National Park Service unit east of Mississippi River to earn this designation and the 20th U.S. National Park Service unit to do so. The park preserves natural nighttime darkness over one of the last free-flowing wild river systems in the eastern United States.

“Just as it is important for people to be able to hike, rock climb, fish, paddle and so many other activities in this beautiful place, it is essential that the wonders of the night sky be available to all experience.”

Superintendent 
Niki Stephanie Nicholas
