Jack Daniel’s: The "Taste of Tennessee" invites visitors to come out and tour the nation's oldest registered distillery from outside the Jack Daniel's Hollow. The Jack Daniel's Experience, a mobile museum, is bringing a little of the much-loved distillery from Lynchburg to anywhere in the USA. Visitors will learn who Mr. Jack Daniel was and how he ended up with the best selling whiskey in the world. They'll get to see (and smell) whiskey dripping slowly through charcoal and the new oak barrels used in maturing Tennessee's finest whiskey. Once you tour the Experience and spend some time with the folks from Jack, it'll make you want to plan a visit to Lynchburg, Tennessee to see how and where they've made Jack Daniel's since 1866. The Experience is open to all folks, 21 years old and up, for tours free of charge. Games and giveaways will also be part of the entertainment at various times throughout the festival.

Fxck Cancer/Dyin 2 Live: The Dyin 2 Live Dreams Program is a wish-granting organization whose purpose is to try to enrich the lives of those fighting cancer by offering them an experience that will bring hope and inspiration to their lives.

Through our extensive network of friends, supporters, and affiliates, we are able to reach out to individuals and present them with one of a kind experiences and opportunities that arise. We feel a Dyin 2 Live Dream can offer a source of inspiration for those undergoing difficult medical treatments and be a positive force that offers a life-changing impact not only to them, but also the family to overcome their obstacles. If you are currently fighting cancer or know of someone in the fight who could benefit from a Dyin 2 Live Dream, please submit your story and tell us why and how a Dyin 2 Live day would help. Also, anyone interested in being a supporter, volunteer, or donor, please contact us at mywish@dyin2live.org.
