On Saturday, September 29 at 10 a.m., bluegrass fans will flock to the Mansfield City Lake Park to be a part of the town’s annual tradition. This will be the seventh year for the increasingly popular event.
Performers at this year’s Bluegrass Festival include Mansfield’s own, Just Us, Common Thread, Frog Bayou Boys, High Mountain Bluegrass, Prairie Creek, Greenland Station, Roving Gamblers, and Southern Tradition.
Concessions will be provided by Scott County Judge James Forbes and vendor booths will be set up for attendees to enjoy throughout the day. T-shirts will also be available. Mansfield School’s JAG (Jobs for America’s Graduates) students will be on hand to help direct parking and receive donations. This is a free event, but donations will be accepted.
You are asked to bring your lawn chairs! Proceeds go to make further renovations to the Dixie Theatre. If you are interested in setting up a booth, you can contact Becky Walker at 479-461-4723.
