The Rock N’ Roll Highway 67 Music Festival will take place October 4, 2014 in Historic Downtown Pocahontas, AR. The festival is to celebrate the Rock N’ Roll history along Highway 67.

U. S. Highway 67 in Clay, Randolph, Lawrence, and Jackson counties has been designated as Rock and Roll Highway 67 in honor of the many early rock and roll stars, like Roy Orbison, Elvis, and Billy Lee Riley, above, who played at venues along that road when rock was young. It will include historic markers, historic sites, and a Museum dedicated to those artists.
