Bring on the Bluegrass!

It’s about that time to head on down to the Riverfront for some of that homegrown bluegrass music. The Bluegrass in the Park & Folklife Festival starts Friday, August 9 and continues through Saturday, August 10.

Food vendors will be open from 4:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. on Friday, and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m.-10:00 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. As always, breakfast will be served Saturday morning from 7:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. The Fox on the Run 5K takes place at 7:00 p.m. on Friday night and is for both runners and walkers. Proceeds go to benefit the Father Bradley Shelter for Women and Children and cost $25 to register. Click here to register.
