2017 RockyGrass instrument contest winners Order your RockyGrass tickets while you still can at shop.bluegrass.com or 800-624-2422. A limited number of 3-day passes as well as Friday and Sunday single-day tickets and camping (in 3 different campgrounds) are still available. But spread the word to your Festivarian family, these won't be around much longer.

Registration is also now open for the RockyGrass instrument contests, featuring contest prize instruments from Deering Banjos, San Juan Mandolins, Beard Guitars, and more. (Sorry, spaces in the RockyGrass band contest are now full.)

Watch for a preliminary lineup for the 45th Annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival (June 21-24, 2018) next week as we approach the winter solstice. And if you're a Folks Festivarian, a few of our early discount tickets ($20 discount!) for the 28th Annual Rocky Mountain Folks Festival (August 17-19, 2018) may still be available.
