Refresh this page to make sure you’re getting the latest updates.

Welcome to the most complete and up-to-date bluegrass festival calendar on the web.  We list events in the US and Canada by month, plus a separate section for festivals around the world.

“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, so if you have information on an event that you don’t see on our calendar, let us know so we can add it to the list or modify what’s there.  Check back often, as we add new shows when we find them.

We’re now offering a printable copy of the calendar, showing all the events for 2022.  Order one here.

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.

So pack up your instruments, load the camper (don’t forget masks and hand sanitizer) and hit the road!

UPDATES  Check the calendar for details.

  • October – New listing:  Bluegrass in the Valley in Alabama.
  • November – There’s a new link for the Sertoma Thanksgiving Bluegrass Festival in Florida.

If you’d like to volunteer some time to help us keep this calendar up to date, we’d love to hear from you. E-mail calendar@bluegrasscountry.org.
