Washington County Bluegrass Festival

Lake Elmo Regional Park South Picnic Pavillion, 1515 Keats Ave N, Lake Elmo, MN 55042

The annual Washington County Bluegrass Festival fuses community, the great outdoors, and homegrown bluegrass music. It’s our way of celebrating a successful summer season and giving thanks to everyone for supporting Washington County Parks.

The festival backdrop is beautiful Lake Elmo Park Reserve, a 2,165-acre parkland, 30 miles east of the Twin Cities metro area. As a park reserve, 80% of the parks total land will be restored to pre-settlement, native vegetation. It’s a great place to recreate, camp, and enjoy nature.

The Bluegrass Festival is FREE for annual park permit holders and available to all visitors for the price of a daily or annual permit. Please no animals or alcohol at the festival. Supported by the Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association (MBOTMA). https://www.co.washington.mn.us/1559/Bluegrass-Festival
