Rescheduling the Bluegrass Heritage Festival
We had to reschedule the Bluegrass Heritage Festival, previously set for May 1-3, for April 23-25, 2021 in order to help keep everyone safe and healthy.
We’ve re-booked the ENTIRE lineup for the Bluegrass Heritage Festival, including the Lonesome River Band, Byron Berline Band, Breaking Grass, and Purple Hulls, for the weekend of April 23-25, 2021. If you already have tickets, you don’t have to do anything other than show up! Tickets and sponsor packages remain in full force, and you’ll have your reserved seats when you arrive next April. We’ll have lots of picking and fun between now and then, but will look forward to gathering together next April. Thank you for your support!
The band schedule is coming soon. Get ready!
Reserve your room now! Rates start at $99.

If you want to connect with jammers, fans, bluegrass music festivals, and other bluegrass music events in Texas, then you’re in the right place. The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation exists to preserve and promote the heritage of bluegrass music. We focus on presenting bluegrass music and bluegrass music festivals in Texas. We work to educate people about our favorite kind of music in many ways, such as programs and workshops, public performances of bluegrass music, and the Bluegrass Heritage Radio Show. Because of our wonderful partnerships with cities around D/FW, many of our bluegrass music festivals are free with no ticket required!
Of course, our most important effort is the free bluegrass instrument lending program for young people – Play It Forward!® The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with an all-volunteer staff that loves to present bluegrass music and bluegrass music festivals in Texas. Please contact us with any questions.
Amazon has a program, AmazonSmile, that lets you help your favorite non-profit when you order gifts or other goodies. Just name Bluegrass Heritage Foundation as your favorite charity at AmazonSmile.com, and Amazon donates .5% of eligible purchases to the Foundation!
