History of Jomeokee Park

Jomeokee means great guide or pilot. “Jo-me-okee,” a lilting term from the language of the Saura Indians.

1970- Tom Jones of Pinnacle, NC opened Jomeokee Campground on his dairy, chicken and tobacco farm.

1974- Lester Flatt held his first bluegrass festival here in the summer of ‘74.

1975- Lester Flatt bought the property from Tom and Pauline Jones

Between 1974 until 1979 Lester Flatt would have bluegrass festivals each summer.

In December 1979 Mr. Flatt sold the property to Alan Pace of Winston-Salem, NC. As part of the sale agreement, a final concert was agreed to for June of 1980. Unfortunately, Lester Flatt died on May 11, 1980. A memorial festival was held in his honor in June.

1980- present Jomeokee Park has been operated as a campground and music park.

In the late 80’s and 90’s Jomeokee was site to the WTQR radio family re-union which was a large outdoor show that featured top-line Nashville country acts such as Travis Tritt , Sammy Kershaw, Lee Greenwood, Ronnie Milsap and Tanya Tucker.
