Summer Salute has quickly become Hopkinsville’s largest event in just two short years. An estimated 35,000 people attended in 2017 in conjunction with the community’s Solar Eclipse celebration. The festival is now positioned as a staple event in Hopkinsville and the region for years to come. Food and merchant vendors, live entertainment, rides and a variety of attractions make this event a true gem of the south. The 2018 edition of Summer Salute settles into a two-day format over Friday and Saturday with musical entertainment throughout both days. Saturday night headliner is country supergroup Sawyer Brown. Friday night’s top billing act is the legendary Jimmy Church Band.
