Wintergrass Thursday 016Get out your best pickin & a grinnin’ outfit. It’s time to start jammin’, rockin’ and bluesin’ at Wintergrass 2016.
From February 25 – 28, the 2016 Wintergrass Music Festival is returning to Bellevue for the seventh straight year. This year marks the 23nd anniversary of one of the biggest and best bluegrass festivals in the country, which originated in Tacoma. Some 30 bands and 200 musicians will perform throughout the 4-day festival.

In addition to more than 70 hours of musical performances, Wintergrass also offers a robust selection of unique educational academies and workshops including PintGrass, a new music program for children 4-7 years. All ages can jam at any of the 75 free family-friendly workshops offered during the festival itself.
While Wintergrass is primarily a bluegrass music festival, you’ll hear plenty of other styles of acoustic music including Gypsy jazz, Celtic music, Old-Timey, Brazilian choro, Swedish polskas and many more types of acoustic string music.
