I have attended MBOTMA, SPBGMA and independent bluegrass festivals all around the state since 1982. I have also attended many out of state festivals in Wisconsin, Georgia, Florida and Bean Blossom, Indiana. Without question, this is the premier bluegrass festival in Minnesota. All of the Lakes Bluegrass Festivals have brought top rated bluegrass bands to our area. And this is one of the few festivals in Minnesota that features entirely bluegrass music.
