Southern Music Rising Festival
Monticello's music is North Florida's best kept secret. In past year's, Southern Music Rising brought a Grammy award winner, one of Nashville's top songwriters, one of the nation's best saxophonists, the Nation's top Ragtime performer and nationally known award-winning bluegrass bands. It also promoted our own local and regional talent. Activities begin at 9:00 am and last into the night at the historic Monticello Opera House in beautiful downtown Monticello.
