Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Blythe Bluegrass FestivalOnce again, the third week of January, January 15-17, the Colorado River Fairgrounds in Blythe, California comes alive with the sounds of bluegrass music. Blythe's Bluegrass event is typically the first major Bluegrass Festival of the season and one of the biggest Bluegrass events in the U.S.A.

This annual festival will proudly present The Gibson Brothers, Band of Ruhks, David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition, Chris Jones & The Night Drivers, Sideline, Marty Warburton & Home Girls, The Blue Canyon Boys, Possum, Trot, Lonesome Otis, Burning Hearts Bluegrass, The Vintage Martins and the Traditional Bluegrass Band.

The Annual Blythe Bluegrass Music Festival has been part of the excitement of the Palo Verde Valley for the last 25+ years. It all started with volunteer organizers, and today that tradition still exists. The Colorado River Boys were the original "host" band (pictured below, without one of the original members). Today, festival organizers and artists continue to reap the enjoyment and excitement that started over 25 years ago.

Each year, thousands flock to the Palo Verde Valley Fairgrounds to enjoy the festivities---not to mention the beautiful weather. The festival is held at the Colorado River Fairgrounds, 1 mile north of Blythe and Interstate 10. Take Intake Off-ramp north, to Riverside Drive, then east to Olive Lake Blvd. The address is Colorado River Fairgrounds, 591 North Olive Lake Blvd., Blythe, CA 92225.
