Wide Open Bluegrass (presented by PNC Bank) is the urban bluegrass music festival that closes out the IBMA’s World of Bluegrass week in beautiful downtown Raleigh!  Jointly produced by the IBMA and Raleigh’s Local Organizing Committee, the festival (formerly known as FanFest), features the best in our traditional and acoustic music community.  In addition to the stellar ticketed main stage, the festival now includes a FREE street festival.  Festival proceeds support the Bluegrass Trust Fund, a non-profit organization helping bluegrass professionals in times of need.  The 2015 festival is slated for October 2 and 3 in Raleigh’s amazing downtown Red Hat Amphitheater.

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.
