The Runaway Country Music Festival visited Osceola Heritage Park last weekend and approximately 50,000 country music lovers were wowed by a series of concerts featuring some 27 acts.
The annual 3-day music festival saw such headliners as Kenny Chesney (pictured above), Eric Church (pictured top) and Central Florida’s own Jake Owen over the three day weekend, 18th to 20th March.
The event this year moved to Osceola Heritage Park from Melbourne because of its larger size and the 2016 event was expected to outdo the 2015 festival that drew fans from 39 states, 10 countries and just about every zip code in Florida. The event included several new bars and taverns as well as two after hour music zones featuring bands and DJs that played until the early hours.
Two stages were erected to keep the country music flowing with the main stage being four stories tall making it one of the largest traveling stages anywhere in the United States. The smaller My Apartment stage featured a wide range of both young and new upcoming artists.
The event will return to Kissimmee for the next decade as organizers say that Runaway Country and Osceola Heritage Park now have a 10 year agreement in place.
