PARKFIELD BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL 2018 THR 5/10/2018 - SUN. 5/13/2018 BMSCC and its members are proud to feature:
For the past 20 years music fans in steadily growing numbers have savored Parkfield's natural beauty and peaceful ambiance. Every Mother's Day weekend finds this sleepy little paradise transformed into a veritable bluegrass dream. Nature's soothing sights and sounds combine with the soulful high lonesome sound of bluegrass music. It's an experience that almost defies description - live bands on a cozy stage in a backyard setting that makes you want it to never end. Dozens of acres of flat "boon-dock" style camping sites, plenty of shade, and hot showers available. Poster
