LEXINGTON, KY - For the 38th consecutive year, the biggest names in bluegrass will converge at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground in Lexington, KY for the oldest family-run bluegrass festival in the country, the Festival of the Bluegrass.
Started in 1974 by Bob and Jean Cornett, this event is attended by thousands and is the crown jewel of bluegrass festivals in the Bluegrass. At its heart, the mission of the Festival of the Bluegrass is to maintain the roots of Bluegrass music in Kentucky and to honor the community spirit of evenings spent on front porches throughout Appalachia. That same spirit can be found in “villages” around the campground as music spills beyond the stage to individual camp sites.
The music begins at 7:00 on Thursday, June 9 and concludes with a gospel show on the morning of Sunday, June 12. On the days in between, music begins at 1pm and runs until after midnight.
The familiar faces of The Seldom Scene and Mountain Heart will be there, joined by first timers the Dixie Bee Liners and Steep Canyon Rangers. We’re also excited to welcome back Town Mountain for their second Festival of the Bluegrass performance. Tickets for this family-friendly event run between $15 for the day to $95 for the entire weekend, with an extra $20 per ticket to camp.
