Dumplin Valley  Bluegrass Festival

21st Annual (postponed til 2021)

September 16-18, 2021


Save the New Date ~ the 21st in 21

Joe and I have looked at this year’s festival from every angle and just cannot justify moving ahead with our plans for a festival this year due to covid-19.  We simply cannot take a risk that could possibly jeopardize anyone’s health.  After all, we consider all of you part of our bluegrass family.  And that makes it even harder to have to postpone this year’s event as it seems like a family reunion to us.  We are so sorry to have to postpone it until next year.  But we truly believe it is the best for all concerned.  Your tickets and camping can roll over to 2021.  And if that doesn’t work for you, please get in touch with us and let us know so we can fix it. 


Our hearts go out to every single musician, sound person, vendor, volunteer, bus driver and all the support personnel who have been affected by the tremendous loss of revenue in 2020.  


We are putting the 21st Annual Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival in a package and sending it to September 16-17-18, 2021 - same lineup.  If there is any change in the lineup we will let you know but as of today, it looks like we will be able to do it.  


Thanks for your understanding and support.

In case you aren’t aware - our campground is open most of the year.
