Camp to Amp Festival sounds off at MidCity

HUNTSVILLE — The second annual Camp to Amp Festival pumps up the volume Saturday with musical performances, vendors, dining, and shopping across MidCity District.

The event runs from noon to 6 p.m. as it connects The Camp to the Orion Amphitheater with streets filled with musicians, artists, local businesses, and chefs with their favorite selections.

The festival is a collaboration among MidCity, the Orion, Huntsville Police Department, Huntsville Music Office, City of Huntsville Parks and Recreation and Octo Hospitality to celebrate music, art and community.

“The overarching theme of Camp to Amp is the community showing up for the community,” said Lindsey Pattillo Keane, executive director of MidCity District. “If you would like to see the best parts about North Alabama – community, diversity, creativity and authenticity – join us for Camp to Amp 2023.”

More than 20 acts will be featured on five stages throughout MidCity. The acts include Sweettalker, Element XI, Rob Aldridge and the Proponents, SNACKS, Oweda, The N.E.I.G.H.B.O.R.S., Wesley Hill, Moon Tree, Hunnivega, DJ EA, DJ Caddi, Rocket City Chorus, and Rocket City Dance Co.

The Orion Amphitheater will also be holding yoga sessions, Zumba classes, music and salsa workshops.

The Huntsville Police Department will have a dedicated kids’ space with more than 20 specialized units, including SWAT, K-9, bike and drone. Officers will be available to answer questions and provide demonstrations.

“Whether it’s learning about our department or interacting with officers, events like this allow us to build relationships with the community,” said Huntsville Police Chief Kirk Giles.

Last year’s festival drew more than 12,000 visitors.

“This year brings more vendors, more food, more stages, more pedestrian-friendly streets, more sponsors and a bigger audience,” Keane said. “Every year we strive to be better than the last.”

There will be ample parking at the MidCity District and walking paths to get from stage to stage throughout the festival.
