Tickets for the Jimmie Van Zant concert is $15 in advance and $20 at the gate. Children ages 12 and under are free with a paying adult. Concert gates open at 4pm and the music line-up starts at 5pm.

The festival falls on the 35th anniversary of the tragic plane crash that injured and killed members of Lynyrd Skynyrd including Jimmie's cousin, frontman Ronnie Van Zant.
