The 2020 Hardtimes Bluegrass Festival has OFFICIALLY been cleared for take-off on July 24th, 25th, and 26th in our NEW LOCATION, 1 point 2 miles up Forest Hill Rd. We will have extra sound speakers so folks can sit apart, and plenty of hand sanitizer stations for folks to keep their hands germ free.
This year will be awesome bands in a beautiful new location with lots of trees for plenty of shade and more level ground. Go to www,hardtimesbluegrass.com for the list of bands or more info about the festival. I believe we’ll have more bunches of FUN than you could shake a stick at. Sorry we still don’t offer pre tickets of reserved camping spots so we’ll see you at the gate. Janice, Mike and Tari
