Because of the consistent growth (and increasing costs) of Bloomin’ Bluegrass, the City of Farmers Branch will require tickets for entry to the 2018 event so that they can continue to provide amazing artists and first-class amenities.  Ticket pricing is shown below.  The Stay & Play packages at our Festival host hotels (Omni or Doubletree) include two free weekend passes.

For Hotel and RV information, check the Official Website.


The park has shady areas and great old buildings perfect for jamming.  Enjoy log cabins, a gazebo, a beautiful old church, and a general store with a front porch!  If you want to take a break from the show, join your old (and new) friends in a jam!  The jamming is one of the best parts of our festival.  Please join in!

Bring the kids!  The Farmers Branch Historical Park has 27 acres of lush grass for burning off energy.
And everyone can enjoy the great old buildings, historical exhibits, and free rose garden tours!
