Oklahoma's International Bluegrass Festival
Oct 05, 2017 to Oct 07, 2017
Join the residents of Guthrie and musicians from across the region for the Oklahoma International Bluegrass Festival, an annual three-day festival featuring international and national bluegrass bands, children's activities and workshops. This world-class music festival aims to support the bluegrass industry in Oklahoma and to educate Oklahomans, as well as visiting tourists, about bluegrass music and its history in Oklahoma. Musicians flock to this Guthrie festival in order to perform and mix freely.
Make your way to the Oklahoma International Bluegrass Festival to enjoy headlining acts on the Cottonwood Creek Stage, as well as the historic charm of Guthrie. Open-mic events are featured throughout the festival, so bring your instruments and join other performers on stage. Performances will showcase a diverse range of acoustic music styles and genres. Come and listen to the sounds of bluegrass, country, folk, original acoustic and swing music in an intimate, performer-friendly environment.
In addition to the non-stop music throughout the festival, a children's tent will also be on-site. Bring the kids and witness as they learn about traditional music and construct pioneer arts and crafts they can take home with them. Food vendors and concessions will be available, as well as quality acoustic instrument dealers. Bring a tent or an RV for tent and RV camping, available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
