Festival Update

Important Announcement

Hello Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival family and friends.

The board of directors of the Brandywine Friends of Old Time Music sadly must inform all that the 49th Annual festival will NOT be held this year and has been rescheduled for Labor Day weekend 2021. As of this moment we are uncertain what restrictions the state of New Jersey would impose in September and the possible limits on occupants. We feel it is better to be safe than sorry, and therefore we should close the gate now rather than face possible liabilities and risks later. All of the 2020 artists have been contacted and ALL have been invited to return next year.

ALL ticket sales will be refunded shortly.

The board regrets this decision but wants all of us to remain safe and healthy with an eye on the 2021 festival. It's been a good 48 year run. Watch for details at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival web site. See you next year!!

Memories from Festivals Past

Our official Festival Photographer, Priscilla Warnock, now has a selection of photos she has taken at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festivals for sale on her web site.  This includes many from the 2009-2011 festivals and a selection of shots from previous festivals, too.  You have probably seen her work on the festival web site, in bluegrass magazines like Bluegrass Unlimited and even on a number of bluegrass CDs.
