The Mulehouse to Host Mega Outdoor Music Party

The inaugural backlot concert series is set for March 31 and April 1.

Columbia music venue The Mulehouse is taking the party outdoors for its inaugural, supersized live music event series on Friday, March 31. The party kicks off Columbia’s annual Mule Day event on Saturday, April 1.

The venue is transforming its backlot into a music celebration featuring headliner Chris Janson and rising star, Shane Profitt. The festivities kick off at 6:30 p.m. with live music, food trucks, a beer garden, VIP area (sold out), multiple bars and more. Breakout country star Janson is a platinum-selling recording artist and Grand Ole Opry member. Shane Profitt is from Columbia and an emerging Country star now signed to Big Machine Label Group Records/Harpeth 60 Records.

On Saturday, April 1, The Mulehouse party will continue after the annual Mule Day parade ends. At 12:30 p.m. local bands will take the stage. Performers include Reeves Bros, Wentzel Bros, Yonder Grove and Buck Sixx. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. For Saturday’s party, admission is free and open to the public.

β€œWe remain in awe of what the Bridle & Saddle Club created as Mule Day so many years ago.Β  Even more impressive is how they have continued to build and sustain those efforts over the course of time,” says Blair Garner, founder of The Mulehouse. β€œI can’t imagine any other annual event β€” so beloved by the people of this town β€” that could even approach the positive impact Mule Day has on our community and local businesses,” he adds.

General admission tickets are $39. For more information, visit
