MUSH, MUSIC & MUTTS FESTIVAL VIDEO CONTEST

VIDEO ANNOUNCEMENT

Instead of having the Liver Mush Festival, we’re giving away a grand prize valued at $1000 for our Liver Mush Video contest. This festival was started over 30 years ago by Mack’s Liver Mush right here in Shelby, NC.  For the past 30 years it’s never been canceled. As disappointed as we are, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of each of you as well as our vendors, staff and volunteers.   BUT we are still planning to have some fun together AND give away $1100 in cash plus great festival swag from Uptown Shirt Factory and other great prizes from local businesses!

This contest will get the news out about how our community loves Liver Mush!
