We will be having the 50th Anniversary Festival May 25-28,2002 and can't wait to see everyone!
The 50th is a special milestone for the festival. We have an incredible lineup with lots of special events planned and we anticipate our largest crowd ever.
Please share with your bluegrass buddies to help get the word out! We want the 50th Anniversary to be one of the best events ever and hope you will be a part of it!!! - Ralph II
This festival is an old time bluegrass music tradition started by Dr. Ralph Stanley and continuing today in his honor. Dr. Ralph's wish was that Ralph II would take over managing the festival, which he did in 2012. Ralph II earned his dad's confidence and trust, and he takes great pride in continuing to honor his dad by making the festival a true tribute to the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and continuing to bring talented bluegrass musicians to the stage for the fans.
The sound of banjos, mandolins and voices ringing high on top of some of the most beautiful mountains you will ever see!
