Bluegrass & Folk Festival in Historic Downtown Cartersville October 18 2014. FREE!
About the Festival
Join us for the second annual Cartersville Bluegrass & Folk Festival on Saturday, October 18, in downtown Cartersville. The first festival, held in October 2013, featured 13 bands on two stages, a Kids' Area
, and more drew more than 2,000 attendees. The hope is to make the 2014 event even bigger and better!
Centrally located among the many historic buildings and progressive charm of downtown, Cartersville Bluegrass & Folk Festival features two stages of entertainment - each nestled among their own, unique atmosphere. The Main Stage, held in Friendship Plaza, features a variety of bluegrass bands. The stage, which sits next to the historic train depot, features a small amphitheater and plenty of grass to bring your blanket or lawn chair to nestle in for the day. Located in the 1979 bay area of the old fire station - which was erected in 1916 – is the Firehouse Stage featuring both bluegrass and folk musicians.
The 2014 event will also feature a vendor area with limited food, craft and art vendor spaces available. Check back soon for more information on the vendor area. The free, family-friendly event also features a Kids' Corner with a variety of games and art activities for children to enjoy.
