Bootheel Bluegrass Festival

Jackson, MO 63755


The Bootheel Bluegrass Festival started in 2005 at the Bavarian Halle in Fruitland.  In January of 2011 we took it over after the hotel wanted to keep the festival and the people wanted to attend.  So, we agreed!  2014 was a successful year for the event, with a record breaking crowd on Thursday night for the all Gospel evening.  Friday and Saturday shows were also very well attended. Saturday afternoon we had to bring out more chairs! Local vendors joined us for the weekend as well as catering by Country Mart.   Since then, we are growing! We had every chair the hotel in use in the ballroom!   Folks, as long as you keep coming we'll keep working and striving to bring you the entertainment and music talents that you want to see and hear.  Let us hear from you. This is your festival and we want to continue bringing bluegrass music to the Bootheel.    January 28th, 2017 we were honored with the Proclamation of "Bluegrass Day" in Cape County!  

Thank you all for your support and we look forward to 2021!
