BACCA's Annual Events
2020 marks the 18th anniversary of the annual Long Island Bluegrass Festival. The festival brings together local and touring acts in a day-long celebration of all things Bluegrass.
This year, two stages featured music throughout the day, culminating with the headlining act in the evening. Tents were set up around the grounds of the park featuring workshops and chances for festival-goers to play with each other to hone their skills.
With children's activities, food and craft vendors, and music-related booths adding to the day's interest, there was something for everyone!
August 8th & 9th, 2020
