Looking Ahead To The Fun September Festivals
We regret to report that the Old Time Bluegrass Festival, normally held on the second Saturday in September at Anderson Marsh State Park in Lower Lake, will take a year off. The good news is that the 7th renewal of this festival is now scheduled for September 14, 2013.
And…down in the Southland, the oldest bluegrass festival in California is no more. Last year, after 41 years, the Julian Bluegrass Festival changed its name to the Julian Music Festival. This year, the event has disappeared — a sad moment for the Southern California bluegrass community.
Also note that the King’s River Bluegrass Festival has moved from the 4th to the 5th weekend of September and the new Mammoth Bluegrass Festival has been added on Labor Day Weekend.
