Welcome to the Bluegrass Country festival calendar.  We list bluegrass, old time and Americana festivals in the US and Canada by month, plus a separate section for festivals beyond North America.

“Bluegrass festival” is a broad category, encompassing old time fiddlers’ conventions, family weekends, street fairs, mega-music festivals and everything in between.  We’ve provided links to the festival websites so you can check the lineups, schedules, admission fees, facilities, whether there’s camping, jamming etc. Our calendar only lists events when we can find a current secure website or Facebook page.  Check back often, as we add new events when we find them.

As always, call before making travel plans.  We’re tracking all sources of information and will update event status on this site as often as we learn of changes.  If you have information on events we haven’t listed,  let us know.

So pack up your instruments, load the camper and hit the road!
