The Perry GA Music Festival Host

The host for the 9th Annual Perry Music Festival is The City of Perry Government. The City of Perry GA is located nearly 15 miles south of Warner Robins GA, and is known as the “Crossroads of Georgia” due to its proximity to several GA highways. Today the city boats a population of over 14K residents, but the first settlers came and cultivated cotton, grains, peanuts, and peaches from the rich soils. The city offers southern hospitality with modern conveniences and hosts a variety of annual family events.
