8th Annual Bluegrass Festival

The Wichita Falls Recreation Department presents a weekend of Bluegrass during the eighth annual Bluegrass Festival. Bluegrass musicians and enthusiasts alike are welcome to attend the event made up of two days of "playing, singing, and socializing." The event is comprised of only acoustic instruments.

A number of Bluegrass bands will perform including Copper Canyon, Hanks and Company, Salt Grass, Southbound Mule, White House Harmony, and others.

People who wish to play music with other Bluegrass musicians, so-called "Jammers," can bring their instruments and jam out in side rooms, outside the concert hall.

Seating is provided, however those who attend can also bring their lawn chairs to enjoy the festival.

Vendors, as well as food and drink concessions will be available both days. Those who attend the festival will have a chance to win door prizes through a drawing.
