Rockwall Founders Day returns May 15 with headliner Wade Bowen

ROCKWALL, TX – March 15, 2021 – After a two year hiatus, the Founder’s Day Festival is back in Rockwall! Last year’s event had to be cancelled because of COVID-19, as it was scheduled to take place right when everything was shutting down.

Concertgoers this year are in for a treat. The Rockwall Parks and Recreation Department has announced their opening and headlining acts for this year’s highly anticipated event. Singer / songwriter Wade Bowen will take the Southwest Kia of Rockwall main stage on Saturday, May 15 in Harry Myers Park. The native Texan has been a consistent favorite in the Texas Country genre for more than 20 years.

Opening for Wade Bowen is Woodlands, TX native Jack Ingram. Look for more details of this free, all-day family event coming soon!
