Backbone Bluegrass Festival – Family Fun

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Backbone Bluegrass Festival July 26-28

It was a fundraiser that turned into a FUN-raiser. The Strawberry Bluegrass Festival in Strawberry Point, Iowa, began in 1981 and has been going strong ever since! A lot of bluegrass music, jamming, workshop sessions, and the newly formed jam camp keep the crowd so busy that the three day festival flys by. Camping on the scenic and tree-filled 20 acre grounds or just driving in for the shows are both purely delightful. So much music, fun and food for so little money. Family entertainment at its best.

DishnTunes.com fans this is something for you! Organizers are hoping to boost local drive in traffic to this year’s bluegrass festival. If you have never been you are likely to be surprised by the top notch quality music, the friendly confines and then awesome natural beauty of the festival grounds.
