Kristmas Town Kiwanis is pleased to announce that the Bluegrass from the Forest festival has been rescheduled to September 10th-12th 2021 at South Mason Youth Soccer Park.

We'll share info as it becomes available. As more and more folks get vaccinated and the state begins to open up, it is our sincere hope that the festival can take place. As always, your safety is very important to us, so COVID-19 protocols will be followed.

Please stay tuned for band and event details as it becomes available. Updates can also be found on our Facebook page

Camping at Bluegrass From the Forest Our 7th annual Midwinter Bluegrass Celebration  December 28 was a huge success and the biggest ever - thanks all who attended!

There is a lot going on at the Bluegrass From the Forest festival. In addition to band performances, the festival offers a host of activities, including Master Workshops, Band Scramble Showcase (anyone can participate) Banjo Contest, Chick Rose’s Youth School of Bluegrass, Mandolin Tasting, Marv’s Slow Jam, vendors (located in the quad) and much more. There will be contests, all night jamming in the campground (midnight hot dogs included). One thing’s for sure, there is plenty to keep you occupied at any time throughout the weekend! Visit our Things To Do page to see a full list of activities.

We're looking for businesses and philanthropists who want to sponsor our festival! It will pay some of our many expenses and also help keep our ticket price very reasonable. Please contact Duane Wilson at duanelwilson@gmail.com and he'll give you the specifics.
