Brief History | Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic 1973 – 2018

A Brief History of Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic Year by Year | 1973 – 2018. Since 1973 Willie Nelson has graced country music fans with his (sorta) annual 4th of July Picnic.  Since ’73, Willie Nelson is to host his 45th annual 4th of July Picnic.  There were a few times when the music festival looked like it would not survive to see its 45th birthday.  For instance, in 1980, at the Perdenales Country Club, Willie Nelson had announced that this was going to be his last festival.  And for the next couple of years, he held his word until the return of the Picnic in 1983-84.
