The Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival is an internationally-acclaimed multi-day music festival. The Festival typically presents as many as two dozen different traditional and contemporary bluegrass artists during the course of the four day event. Often New Grass, Old Tyme, Americana, and Singer/Songwriter performances will be sprinkled in here and there but the majority of the bands are firmly in the bluegrass camp. Most artists will perform on the brand new Timber Frame Main Stage. The Workshop Stage schedule focuses on a wide variety of informative and instructional presentations, although performances, band showcases, meet & greets, and jam sessions are also presented on the Workshop Stage. In addition, the All Star Jam held every Friday at around 5PM is conducted here.
