See daily events schedule below
Proceeds from the event will go toward a scholarship fund for Irwin County High School seniors studying music or pursuing a career in music.
The Prater Music Festival will be held May 10-12, 2017, in Ocilla. This is the festival’s third year.
The first ever Dave Prater Music Scholarship will be awarded during the 2017 celebration.
Ocilla is located in Irwin County, about two hours south of Macon just east of I-75. It is the birthplace of the late R&B singer who shot up the record charts in the mid-1960s as half of the Sam and Dave singing duo. They are best known for hits “Soul Man,” “Hold on, I’m Coming,” and “When Something is Wrong with My Baby.”
