Thank you for supporting the Route 66 Bluegrass Festival in 2017. The bluegrass fans, bands, and volunteers helped make for another successful event and all are greatly appreciated. The intense heat these past three years on the Father’s Day weekends has continued to be a major negative factor in the overall experience of the festival. Kris and I work during the school year, so having the festival at a cooler time of year is out of the question. Other very personal reasons have also contributed to the decision to not hold the Route 66 Bluegrass Festival in 2018.
