Bring on the Bluegrass!

It’s about that time to head on down to the riverfront for some of that homegrown bluegrass music. The 35th Annual Bluegrass in the Park & Folklife Festival starts Friday, August 13 and continues through Saturday, August 14.

Food vendors will be open from 4 to 10 p.m. on Friday, and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Two things you won’t want to miss (besides the music!) are the Fox on the Run 5K and the annual Breakfast in the Park tradition. Join Casey Todd and the Hometown Roots crew for an exclusive Roots breakfast, served Saturday morning from 7 to 10:00 a.m., and enjoy live music by Maggie Hollis. The Fox on the Run 5K takes place at 7 p.m. on Friday night and welcomes both runners and walkers. Proceeds go to benefit The Shelter for Women and Children and cost $25 to register. Register here. Aside from enjoying the Bluegrass music, there are plenty of activities for the kids, including a petting zoo, games, and a harmonica workshop!

Below is a list of the festivities & music lineup– don’t miss a beat!
