River Valley Bluegrass Festival

River Valley Bluegrass Park, 24 Alphonse Road, River Valley

This is a Bluegrass and Country Festival in River Valley, Ontario! We'll be playing two sets, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. We hope to see you there!

Visit http://rivervalleybluegrasspark.ca/ for tickets & details.

Here's the description from their website: River Valley Bluegrass Park is located in River Valley, Ontario. We are nestled on the shores of the Temagami and Sturgeon Rivers about 40 minutes outside of Sturgeon Falls Ontario. The land was purchased by Tony de Boer in 1984. Tony had a dream, he wanted to create a place and space for his family and friends to come to hear Bluegrass music while creating lifelong memories together.

Our first festival was held in 1985 and is still going strong today. With the help of family, friends, and many volunteers the park continues to flourish. It is a destination for relaxation, fun, and family connection for all our park community residents.

We offer RV, seasonal RV camp sites, along with rough tent camping sites. Our park opens for camping on May 15th and closes for the winter season on October 15th. River Valley provides campers with an excellent variety of fishing, swimming, canoeing, and kayaking experience spread across 190 acres of pure fun!
