Bluegrass on the Beach Music Festival back at Windsor Beach for the 18th Year
For almost 20 years now, the first weekend in March has been reserved for music on the shores of Lake Havasu. That's when Bluegrass on the Beach comes to town. With its American beginnings in the Appalachian mountain region, Bluegrass pulls from its originators' European roots (Scotland, England, and Ireland). They threw in a little African-American jazz and blues as well, bringing a unique genre to the musical arena. This weekend, anyone who loves Bluegrass needs to hit the beach.

American music deserves an American start. So, it should surprise no one that this three-day event begins with the National Anthem at 9:30 am on Friday, March 6th. After a formal welcome to all gathered there, the first band of the festival (Flint Hill Special) performs. Throughout the weekend, you'll hear amazing Bluegrass performances from the likes of The Dave Adkins Band, Mark Phillips and IIIrd Generation, Russell Moore & IIIrd Time Out, and The Kody Norris Show. In between their sets, listen to other fantastic performers. Do you play Bluegrass music for fun? Bring along your instrument and join in on one of the many jam sessions planned off-stage. Don't be shy. It's all for fun!
Organizers encourage guests to bring their own chairs. You'll be allowed to set up your chairs in any available space on the very first day and leave them for the duration of the festival. Just make sure to grab them before you go on your last day there. Coolers must be left in your campsite or vehicle. None will be allowed on festival grounds. But, don't worry. There will be food and drink vendors available on-site. So, you'll never be hungry or thirsty. The festival area is also a no pet/no smoking area. Please leave your furry friends at home.
Tickets for the Bluegrass festival cost $20 per adult for Friday and Sunday. Saturday, the biggest day of the festival, costs $25 per adult. Teens (ages 13 to 18) get in for just $10 per day. And kids under 13 get in for free with a paid adult. Plan on coming back for more than one day? Hook yourself up with a three-day pass for $100. This includes a dry camping spot located at the Windsor Beach Lot #4.
