37th Annual Bower's Mansion Bluegrass Festival
Friday ~ Sunday, August 25 - 27, 2023
About the Bower's Mansion Bluegrass Festival
Plenty of shade. Bring your low-backed chairs, blankets. Coolers OK, but no glass, please. And sorry, no pets.
Every August for 35 years, the beautiful Bower's Mansion Regional Park in Washoe Valley (between Reno and Carson City) has been home to a music festival like no other. BLUEGRASS music will lift your spirits, get you laughing, singing and tapping your toes! Maybe you'll even try your hand at playing a banjo at our popular, "Bluegrass Instrument Petting Zoo"! It's just plain FUN for all ages.
Friday Jam Camp, 10am to 3:30pm - Learn to Jam with others in 5 hours -- guaranteed! If you know a few chords and/or a few songs already, but are still not sure about joining a bluegrass jam, this workshop is for you! Details here
