Revamping the Bluegrass tradition here at the Park, instead of one festival, we are getting together for three nights this spring/summer. People may attend and enjoy each festival or only certain ones. Every night will have a different band and delicious BBQ. This refocuses the events on Bluegrass and its culture, so all can enjoy the roots of the traditional music. Bring your lawn chairs to enjoy jamming at the Gazebo at noon, then the musicians start playing under the Gazebo at 4:00. Instruments welcome to jam, as well as, wagon rides, cornhole, and more fun will be had at these three events. Click here for the poster.
