SkinnyFest Bluegrass Music Festival

1266 Hamilton Road
Lynx, OH 45650

In the summer of 2012, a few good friends were contemplating the expense of attending a local Bluegrass Festival. Each year the group of fine folks had historically attended several Bluegrass festivals throughout Ohio and Kentucky. Supporting Bluegrass music is very important to these folks, but 2012 left a few of them with less disposable income than in years past. This group of musicians and music lovers thought that they might be able to create a Bluegrass music festival enviroment, for free, on their local property. They invited family and friends to setup their campers and tents and played music all weekend, just as if they were at a "Big Box" Bluegrass Festival. The event was such a success that it was repeated in 2013. A good time was had by all, and thanks to a few local business sponsor donations, the crew was able to build a stage and hire a few professional groups the next year.
