Kentucky Bluegrass Music Festival

The Kentucky Bluegrass Music Festival, Louisville’s celebration of traditional Kentucky music, returned in 2006 after a more than two-decade hiatus. The summer festival, held on the Belvedere downtown near the Ohio River and Louisville Waterfront Park, usually features about 15 bands playing various styles, from contemporary and traditional bluegrass to blues, folk, country, and gospel-inspired music. Food, games, and other activities are also available during the festival.
