Bluegrass Festivals

Saturday, June 8-15
Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival

Bill Monroe’s Music Park & Campground, Morgantown, Indiana
Times vary

As the oldest continuously running bluegrass festival in the world, Bean Blossom is enough of a tradition after 53 years that it’s worth the trip to Brown County, Indiana. You have two weekends to make the drive. Headliners this year are Shenandoah, Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson and J.D. Crowe., but 40 bands will be playing.

Sunday, June 9
Bluegrass on the Beargrass

Cherokee Park
Free ($50 for VIP Experience)
2:30-7:30 p.m.

This bluegrass festival is closer to home — and only one day long. Listen to Plum Hokum, Noam Pikelny (banjoist for the Punch Brothers), Stuart Duncan and Relic play for one night only at Cherokee Park. They’re accompanied by food trucks, beer, a free play area, a jam tent, face painting and even a beard contest. —Danielle Grady
