We are excited to announce the addition of a new bluegrass festival held in Ontario, Canada.

The South Grenville Bluegrass Festival is holding its premier festival this summer and it looks like a great one!

Yes, it’s in Canada and, yes, it’s a very manageable drive. (Google says 5 hours 20 minutes from Highland, 4 hours 15 minutes from Albany.

The camping at the site is on high ground, never muddy.

The stage is in a large airy building bigger than a hockey arena (with indoor washrooms). Rain is never an issue.

Our feature bands this year include Carson Peters & Iron Mountain (Nashville), Danny Paisley & Southern Grass (PA), and The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band (Maryland) plus a great “old country” band on Thursday.

For people paying in US$, you can expect the prices to be $75 in advance, $90 at the gate.

The HVBA is chartered as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit arts and educational organization, we promote bluegrass and related acoustic music in the Hudson Valley through jam sessions, concerts, and open mics in conjunction with other not-for-profit organizations.
