Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival

September 19-21, 2019

The 20th Annual Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival will once again bring 3 days of world-class, original live bluegrass music from 15 regional and national acts to Kodak, TN. 


For 20 years, the Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival has been honoring our mountain roots, history, and heritage while entertaining bluegrass fans from across the country.  Founders and promoters Joe and Mitzi Soward have been attracting the most talented bluegrass, gospel, and country artists through the years, and the event now features some of the biggest and best names in the genre. 




Get your ticket, grab your lawn chair and if you’re a picker--bring your instrument. This hometown family-fun gathering has also become a destination for pickers who enjoy jamming with other music lovers!  

We're looking forward to seeing you too Rhonda Vincent!
