The NEPA Bluegrass Festival joins a growing list of entertainment events returning in 2021 after losing last year to the coronavirus pandemic.
The 14th edition of the festival will run Thursday, June 3, through Sunday, June 6, at Lazy Brook Park, Tunkhannock.
Presented by Danny and Christa Stewart of Wyalusing, the festival will have acts on two stages: the traditional (main) one and the progressive stage along Tunkhannock Creek.
No concerts will take place Thursday, but jamming will be allowed. On Friday and Saturday, performances run from after breakfast through the evening. Sunday’s entertainment starts with a gospel sing-along and continues through the afternoon.
“We have missed you all and hope you are safe and healthy,” Christa Stewart said in an announcement. “This year’s band lineup is over-the-top, and there are lots of new food and craft vendors.”
This year’s main stage headliners include Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, the Malpass Brothers, Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike, the Little Roy and Lizzy Show, the Dave Adkins Band, Sideline and Seth Mulder & Midnight Run Bluegrass.
The festival will post regular updates on its Facebook page, according to an announcement.
Ticket packages range from $20 to $80. Weekend passes purchased in advance online include free camping. For tickets, visit nepabluegrass.com.
