The Main Stage

Our main stage sits on top of what was once a green of the former golf course. It's a beautiful setting backed by lots of tree. The seating area is open but we have 2 large tents for shade or rain protection (You'll want to bring your own lawn chairs). We have the very best in sound so there is no bad seat in the house! The show goes on rain or shine. We can move to the Big Pavilion if necessary. The music on the main stage starts at 5:00 Thursday and goes on until 2:00 Sunday afternoon.

Dance at Lakes Bluegrass Festival
Under The Big Pavilion

We have a beautiful 40 X 100 pavilion which is our food court, but we also have country music concerts and dance on Wednesday afternoon and evening and it's FREE TO THE PUBLIC! Thursday afternoon is an Old Time Dance from 1:00 - 4:00 (Paid festival admission is required). The "Big Pavilion" makes for a great place to gather with friends all weekend and you can buy some delicious food and beverages . We also have a workshop pavilion and an entertainers pavilion. 

The Lakes Music and Events Park

Since 2021, The Lakes Music and Events Park has been the home of the Lakes Bluegrass Festival. The Park is owned and operated by The Pine River Area Foundation, also the owners of the Lakes Bluegrass Festival, ensuring a stable home for the event for years to come. We hope you can come out and see our beautiful new park!
