Real Music for Real People


4/21/2020: The Black Hills Bluegrass Association announces today that the 40th Annual Black Hills Bluegrass Festival has been canceled due to the COVID-19 Virus.

After thorough evaluation and deliberation by the committee, the decision was made to cancel the Bluegrass Festival for this year.  As we weighed the ability to keep the bands and audience safe, along with the business climate and uncertain times, it became clear that this was the right course of action.

We will be working with the bands who were scheduled to play this year and hope to re-schedule them to play the festival June 25, 26, 27, 2021.  Any advance tickets that have been purchased will be held and honored at the festival next year.  If you are not able to attend next year or wish to receive a refund, please let us know at info@blackhillsbluegrass.com.

For those who purchased raffle tickets to our Festival Weekend Package Raffle, we will hold your tickets for the drawing to be held before the 2021 festival.

We are grateful for your support for the festival over the past 40 years .  We hope to see you at the festival next year June 25, 26, 27, 2021.
