Parkfield Bluegrass Festival has been cancelled for 2021.

Out of care and concern for the health and well being of our attendees, bands, volunteers, vendors and Parkfield residents, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 & 2021 Parkfield Bluegrass Festivals. Based on the latest guidance from public health officials and the state of emergency declared in California, it became clear that we should not hold our festival in May.

Our Festival Director, Dave Swartz, and the Varian family tried to find an alternative date in October but multiple obstacles and scheduling conflicts made that option unviable. Consequently we will not hold a festival in 2021 and will focus our attention on our 2022 festival.

All tickets purchased for the 2020 or 2021 festival will automatically transfer to the 2022 festival , dates to be announced.

If you would like to request a refund, please provide the email and name used to purchase your tickets by clicking on this link.

Thank you for your patience and loyalty. Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Our festival has grown substantially in recent years.  To avoid overcrowded in the audience and camping areas Multi-Day Tickets and Saturday Day Tickets will be limited.  We suggest you purchase your tickets early.
