The Minnesota Bluegrass August Festival is held annually at El Rancho Mañana Campground the Thursday-Sunday surrounding the second Saturday of August. This festival features top national touring acts as well as the best bands from the Upper Midwest region in four days and nights of music on multiple stages, plus workshops, showcases, and much, much more!
This festival is really an entire week of musical fun at El Rancho Mañana near Richmond MN. Bluegrass, Old-Time Stringband, and related forms of acoustic and Americana music are combined to suit a wide range of interests. You'll enjoy hearing something familiar and discovering something new! Pre-festival instructional camps will be followed by four days of bluegrass and old-time bliss.
