The Upper Midwest's Premier All - Bluegrass Event!

The Lakes Bluegrass Festival - August 20 - 24, 2014

Now in our ninth year, the Lakes Bluegrass Festival consistently receives rave reviews. This is a family-friendly event so bring the kids and come for a day, an evening or camp all weekend.

Located in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes Area in Pine River, MN, this festival features the best in national touring and Minnesota bluegrass bands, along with professional Emcees, a top-notch sound system, a beautiful stage and a big tent for shade and rain protection (bring your lawn chairs). There are over 40 professional bluegrass shows in all over the 4-day weekend. Plus, learn to play or brush up your skills at one of our FREE bluegrass workshops on banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bass, dobro and harmony singing. Plus, visit the new indoor "Unplugged Stage" to hear up and coming talent playing in a more intimate setting than the main stage.

And that’s not all! Stroll the grounds and listen to the impromptu jam sessions, sample the tasty food at one of our food vendors, take a short walk into the friendly town of Pine River, or just relax and visit with friends. You’ll find that bluegrass fans are the friendliest around!
