"Enjoy a sampling of some the best bluegrass bands in the state when you visit Bluegrass at the Village on Sunday, Aug. 13. This year’s line-up includes: Pickin’ Up Speed, Chicken Wire Empire, Macon River Ramblers, Hand-Picked Bluegrass and Big Cedar. New to Bluegrass at the Village this year is Hand-Picked Bluegrass from Tomahawk, WI. Back by popular demand are Macon River Ramblers and Big Cedar. These bands bring different sounds to the stage from traditional to gospel to Americana. Links to the band websites can be found at http://www.ochs.co.ozaukee.wi.us/
In addition to outstanding bluegrass music, young fiddlers will showcase their talents around the village. A wide selection of food and beverages can be enjoyed, including craft beers at the beer tent. Show off your talents by participating in the "Kitchen Band". Some of the homemade instruments will be the washboard, washtub, stump fiddle and jug.
Tickets may be purchased the day of the event and are a real bargain: $10 for Adults and $8 for seniors and students. Children 5 years of age and under are free. The grounds open a half hour earlier at 11am and music starts at noon and music continues to 6pm. Rain-or-Shine. We now have over 400 seats under the big tent or bring a chair or blanket for those who want to soak up the sun.
