North Branch Bluegrass Festival
What: The 2008 North branch Bluegrass Festival
When: Saturday June 21, 2008
When: 11 AM - 8 PM , Gates Open at 10 AM
For our first year promotion, The 2008 North Branch Bluegrass Festival proceeds are going entirely to local non-profit charities and local civic organizations. The Danby 4 Corners Music Shop and The Blue Mountain Guitar Center will be joining us and will peddle whatever they can.
We don't presently have any RV parking. This is a one day, down by the river after one of the biggest precipitation winters we've had for a long time so we've just put No RV's on our flyers. We currently have two different festival sites as we are unsure what might possibly be wet if we get a bunch of rain and how far down the brook we'll be able to go. Of course, our best spot is the farthest from the road.
I feel confident that we'll have a good day, weather permitting.
Our thanks to all of you for being tolerant of our inexperience. And thanks in advance for any tips. We've sent out press releases to about two dozen newspapers throughout the state though we have no real way of knowing what they do or do not print. We'll be getting a couple of plugs on the radio locally from a friend. Our website continues to help us gain interest. We're on about a dozen web calendars for various places. Posters should hopefully be out in about a month. I designed the festival program yesterday. We did make Candi Sawyer's Bluegrass Guide.
