July 20th to 22nd, 2018 · Minden Fairgrounds · Minden, Ontario, Canada

Welcome to our 8th annual Bluegrass Festival!!

** New Starting Time – Friday the 20th at 2 PM – Plan to be here early **

We have another exciting line up showcasing great Canadian talent and for our second year, an American band.

We are featuring two headliners this year – Roxeen & Dalrymple from Nova Scotia, Canada and from Ohio, USA, Larry Efaw and The Bluegrass Mountaineers.

Be sure to check out our band listing to see who else will be performing at this years event.

We are growing and changing.

We analyzed the survey results, reviewed our festival structure, and have made some changes which we think will greatly enhance your weekend enjoyment.

The festival will be starting earlier on Friday the 20th at 2 pm and finish Saturday evening the 21st. Jam into the night and leave anytime Sunday at your leisure. There will be no performances on the Sunday.

Want to miss the Sunday traffic? Camp over Sunday night and leave early Monday morning.

For our early campers the Thursday Night Band Scramble on the 19th will be hosted by Roxeen & Dalrymple from 7 to 9 pm.

Why not arrive earlier in the week and relax before the festival begins.

We offer additional camping starting Monday July the 16th through to Thursday the 19th and Sunday the 22nd at $10 per night.

** New Starting Time – Friday the 20th at 2 PM – Plan to be here early **

We are now taking reservations for camp sites. Be sure to book early to take advantage of early bird prices or if you want to be closer to the stage or with your friends!

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Minden and our partners; the Minden Kin, the Township of Minden Hills, and the County of Haliburton, we look forward to seeing you in July!!
