The Foothills Gospel Music Park was established by Dillard Hudgins in 2003 in the northeast Georgia town of Carnesville, Georgia. Formerly known as The Refuge Camp, it wasn't long until Dillard and his wife, Linda decided to separate The Refuge Camp from their rapidly growing music ministry. In 2009, the Singing Pavillion became known as The Foothills Gospel Music Park. They now promote The Saturday Night Gospel Opry through Northeast Georgia Promotions almost every Saturday night at 6:00 PM, with concessions at 5:00 PM. With artists like Karen Peck & New River, Reggie Sadler, New Road 2, and The McKameys, Dillard and Linda Hudgins are always striving to bring in the utmost quality with your enjoyment and spiritual uplifting in mind. In the future, they plan to have such artists as John Lanier, From the Ashes, Quinton Mills, and many more in addition to these.
