The 2019 Evanston Bluegrass Festival is a one-day festival held at beautiful and historic Depot Square in downtown Evanston, Wyoming. This year’s festival will be held on Saturday, June 22nd from noon to 10pm.
Performers will entertain the audience from the professional outdoor stage. A diverse group of award winning bluegrass musicians have been selected to perform this year. Their styles range from traditional bluegrass to progressive bluegrass as well as Americana and Folk. One Ton Pig, Jalan Crossland, Aaron Davis and the Mystery Machine, The Two Tracks, The Littlest Birds and Red Desert Ramblers make up the lineup for 2019. Music from these nationally and regionally acclaimed bands will fill the air in this beautiful, and uniquely Evanston, setting. Artist’s, from jewelry makers, to basket weavers and painters, will be selling their wares. And, of course, there will be food booths to satisfy every taste and a beer and wine garden serving handcrafted microbrews, domestic beers and wine throughout the day.
The festival is a fundraiser for Bluegrass Evanston’s Global and Local Educational Initiative and provides entertainment for the whole family. Bluegrass Evanston, the sponsoring organization, is a 501c3 charitable organization whose purpose is to produce an annual regional bluegrass festival to raise money for its educational initiative: To provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged children living in impoverished areas around the world and in our own community and, advancing a culture of caring, awareness and empathy about global issues within our schools and community. We do this with the added intention of promoting cultural tourism and economic development within our community.
