Bloomin' Bluegrass Festival nominated for 2014 IBMA Event of the Year AwardBloomin’ Bluegrass nominated for
2019 IBMA Event of the Year Award

August 8, 2019
The Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival, now in its tenth year and presented by the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation and the City of Farmers Branch, Texas, has been nominated for the third time for the Bluegrass Event of the Year Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association.  The award will be presented at the IBMA’s World of Bluegrass Luncheon on Thursday, September 26, 2019, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Alan Tompkins commented that “this nomination is a tribute to the commitment by the City of Farmers Branch Texas and all the people who have worked so hard for many years to make this a great event.  We truly value and honor all the folks who come out to enjoy the music, jam, socialize, and enjoy each year at Bloomin’.  We are again humbled by this nomination and express our appreciation to IBMA.”

According to IBMA, the award recognizes events (festivals, concerts, event series, or other live performance productions) for their outstanding accomplishment and service to bluegrass music in the field of event production. The event is judged by its ability to further bluegrass music in its
region or area of service; production quality in terms of presentation and organization; environment; and overall audience experience.

The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers,
promoting bluegrass music in Texas. While it's free to get in the door to many of our events,
keeping the doors open isn't free. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
