DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — This Saturday, Landmark Park will be holding their first-ever Bluegrass Festival.
This festival will include live bluegrass music throughout the day, jam sessions for anyone who wants to bring their own instruments, kids’ activities, food vendors, and more.
And as Landmark Park Executive Director, Laura Stakelum says this festival is an opportunity to promote the bluegrass music culture.
“Our mission here at landmark park is to preserve and promote our culture here in the Wiregrass,” Stakelum said. “And bluegrass music is a huge part of our culture. And we were finding that these festivals were kind of dying out, there’s not as many as there used to be, there’s not that many opportunities for bluegrass musicians to get together and jam.”
The Bluegrass Festival will begin at 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and military, $4 for kids, or free for park members and children 2 and under.
