The 15th Annual Lakes Bluegrass Festival
The 15th Annual Lakes Bluegrass Festival

We're Moving!

How You Can Help!

We are very excited about our new location and hope you share in our excitement and vision for the future of the The Lakes Bluegrass Festival. The new site is bare land so we have many needs for improvements including a stage, electrical for up to 200 campsites, permanent rain/shade shelters in concert area, pavilion in food court, other small buildings and eventually a bath/shower house and RV dump station. Click here to donate to the new site improvements.

 

We do have ongoing income from the event (in good years), sponsors and grants, but not near enough to build all of the infrastructure we need in a reasonable time period. So, we are asking you, our loyal fans, to come along side of us and help us make this dream a reality!

VOLUNTEER! 

 

We could really use your help to get the grounds ready for 2020. We will be holding several work weekends, so if you can come with a lawn mower, chain saw, or other equipment, or just a pair of gloves and willingness to help out, it would be greatly appreciated. We have the following weekends tentatively scheduled so far for mowing, general clean up, tree trimming, etc.
