The Gathering at Paint Rock Farm is created by Chris Nelson and Tama Dickerson, co-owners of Paint Rock Farm, music lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, that believe in sourcing and spotlighting the best of regional musicians, artists, teachers, vendors, and community partners. “We have carefully curated a family friendly experience that blends music, nature, and spirit and transcends beyond just another music festival,” says Chris Nelson. “The last 18 months have brought us both a challenge and an opportunity to discover who we want to be and how we want to live. Nature has come to the forefront as one of the most powerful healing agents of this time. Hundreds of guests came to Paint Rock Farm in 2020 to safely find solace and renewal in nature, including many talented musicians, and the idea of a music festival was born,” says Tama Dickerson. “This is an opportunity to spend 3 days making new connections, learning from each other, and creating a bright new future that embraces our diversity and brings our relationship to nature back into the forefront of our lives.”
