24th Annual Brookdale Bluegrass Festival

March 15 @ 5:00 pm - March 17 @ 10:00 pm

Enjoy three days of great bluegrass and folk music on stage; afternoon and late night jams, and food and drink at the Brookdale Bluegrass Festival March 15 through March 17, 2024 at the Historic Brookdale Lodge. All the toe-tapping old time Americana and bluegrass tunes you love. Y’all come now!

This is a heritage Santa Cruz Mountains event, created at the Brookdale Lodge in 2000 by Brookdale Bluegrass front man Eric Burman. Peruse the lively Western themed vendor market and enjoy numerous food trucks and libation options. Come say hello to “Sera,” one of the horses from Canjam Farm Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation. A portion of the proceeds from the bluegrass festival weekend benefit this Scotts Valley nonprofit, which rescues abused and neglected horses from across the Western states and gently trains them to be adopted to forever homes.

Three-day and single-day pass are on sale now!
