Bloomin' Bluegrass Festival nominated for 2014 IBMA Event of the Year AwardBloomin’ Bluegrass nominated for
2020 IBMA Event of the Year Award

August 10, 2020
The Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival, in its eleventh year and presented by the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation and the City of Farmers Branch, Texas, has been nominated for the fourth time for the Bluegrass Event of the Year Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association.  The award will be presented at the IBMA’s virtual World of Bluegrass event happening next month.

Alan Tompkins commented that “this nomination is yet another tribute to the City of Farmers Branch Texas and all the people who have worked so hard to make this a great event.  We sincerely appreciate all the people who come out every year to enjoy the music, jam, and socialize at Bloomin’.  We are again humbled by this nomination and express our appreciation 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.
