Bluegrass BBQ Festival

Bluegrass and Barbecue 2015 - August 28,29 & 30

Salem's Bluegrass music festival is celebrating it's 25th year. Bluegrass and Barbecue is brought to you by the Oddfellows Mt. Olive Lodge #114 of Salem, the Salem Tourism Board and area sponsors.

For the past quarter of a century entertainers from across the US and from foreign countries have graced the Bryan Memorial Park band stage. Grammy winners, television stars and well known Bluegrass acts along with some of the finest local talent have performed here.

This year's lineup includes eight of the most entertaining and talented groups in the business. All of these artists have performed here at least once during the run of the festival.

They are all coming back to make this 25th year celebration one you will not forget! You are sure to enjoy this family-friendly concert in the park. Don't miss this year's show, come early and stay late. We could not do this without you, thanks for your support.

Bring a lawn chair and a smile!

See You There
