Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are postponing the festival until May 2021. We are disappointed that we've had to re-schedule, but look forward to seeing all of you in May! You definitely don't want to miss this one - our 50th Anniversary!
This festival is an old time bluegrass music tradition started by Dr. Ralph Stanley and continuing today in his honor. Ralph Stanley II started managing the festival seven years ago, earning his dad's confidence and trust, and he takes great pride in continuing to honor his dad by making the festival a true tribute to the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and continuing to bring talented bluegrass musicians to the stage for the fans.
The sound of banjos, mandolins and voices ringing high on top of some of the most beautiful mountains you will ever see!
Check out our schedule page for one of the best line-ups in traditional bluegrass music! Since we're celebrating the 50th Anniversary of this festival we have an expanded line-up and will be starting the festival on Wednesday.
Saturday Night - Golf Cart Parade. For all you folks with golf carts get your decorations ready! We're having our 3rd Annual Golf Cart Parade through the campground Saturday night after the show. There will be a Grand Prize (and of course bragging rights) for the best decorated cart! Additional details will be announced at the festival - just be sure to bring those decorations!
