Old 280 Boogie
Gates at 11 am / Showtime at NOON As seen in Garden & Gun: Part music festival, part yard-party, this BYOB event draws fans twice a year to tiny Waverly. Also called the Waverly Boogie, its spring installment has been going strong for seventeen years, and organizer Scott Peek added the Fall Boogie in 2012. Music runs from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., with as many as six bands. And though its proximity to Auburn makes hotels a scarcity (at least on football weekends), the Boogie is less than a two-hour drive from Atlanta and Birmingham, making it an ideal day-trip. Don’t Miss: The lineup is yet to be announced, but the Boogie has built a strong track record, with previous performers including Jason Isbell and Alabama Shakes before they began selling out far bigger venues.
