    Jamming at the Bloomin' Bluegrass FestivalBloomin' Bluegrass Festival at Farmers Branch Texas Historical Park


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!

So that everyone can have a clear view of the stage, only blankets and grass seating will be permitted in the area directly in front of the stage.  Standard lawn chairs may be used behind the rope line that will designate the blanket and grass-seating area.  Lawn chairs can be rented for $3 per day per chair during the Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival.  The funds raised from the chair rentals helps to support the Friends of the Farmers Branch Historical Park.

If you’re bringing your instrument(s) and planning to jam, you can catch a golf cart ride from the ADA parking area at 12300 Ford Road to ease the load. The cart will take you right up to the Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival entrance.  Please note that no items may be left in the park overnight.

Visit the Official Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival Website for more details!
