36th Annual Prescott Bluegrass Festival

25 June 2017  

The Prescott Bluegrass Festival started as a fiddle contest dedicated to a local fiddler. Now, 36 years later, it’s one of the most loved Prescott summer events.

The crowd on the south lawn of the courthouse square enjoyed some good music Saturday afternoon and evening. The Prescott Bluegrass Festival features some great bands this year. A Friday night stroll along Whiskey Row offered a sneak preview of the Bluegrass Festival:

The up and coming Prescott based Sugar & The Mint played, along with southwest favorites Sonoran Dogs. 

It is a particularly Prescott-y type of Courthouse Square scene, with people of all ages in every variety of folding chair and sprawled on the grass. Of course dogs are a part of the scene, from the tiniest chihuahua to the bouncing golden doodles. 

Saturday night, the Old Blue Band performed, with seasoned professionals who like to play a traditional style and fiddler Heidi Clare and mandolin master Ron Thomason. They can be heard again on Sunday if you missed them. 

The fun continues Sunday when music will be presented from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
