  • Overview

    Join us in beautiful Tower Park, under a majestically illuminated Allen Hazen Water Tower, for the seventh annual Beaverdale Bluegrass Festival!

    Featuring: Joseph Huber (Wisconsin; 8:45 - 10:00) Huber has honed his songwriting abilities immensely and now continues moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well-crafted songs under his own name and with his backing band. Whether it's irresistible, fiddle-driven, dancing tunes or honest, heart-wrenching "songwriter" songs, Huber spans the spectrum of 'Roots' music while preferring not to stay within the boundaries of any strict genre classification.

    Miles Over Mountains (Chicago, IL, 7:30-8:30) plays a modernized style of progressive bluegrass covering a wide spectrum of genres, dynamics, and feeling.

    Lori King & Junction 63 (Upper Midwest, 6:15-7:15) Traditional and hard-driving instrumentals paired with Midwestern determination and grit.

    The Cardinal Sound (Des Moines, IA; 5:00 - 6:00) Energetic 4-piece Jamgrass/Americana Jam Band that fuses different parts of Americana music to produce an upbeat and entertaining live show.

    This event is free and open to all. Beer will be available for purchase. Food trucks will be on hand. We recommend bringing blankets, lawn chairs and water.
