Graves Mountain Festival of Music - in the Blue Ridge, returns for its 27th year with a three day line-up of Bluegrass new finds, up and coming, and long-time festival favorites.  The dates are the three days May 30, Thursday, May 31, Friday, and June 1, Saturday, with performances running from late morning through to 10:30 PM, when festival goers pull out their own fiddles and banjos back at their RVs.


The festival area - the Graves Family Farm - the meadows, the camping, the walnut trees, the stream, horses, cattle, goats - all framed by the Blue Ridge Mountains just there at the edge of the camping fields. The stage is serenaded by the Rose River and the sixteen hundred returning campers clapping and whistling for their favorite fiddlers.

Dates: Thurs May 30 - Sat June 1
