Thursday July 21-24, 2022 30th Annual Grassroots Festival

We’re excited to be celebrating the 30th Annual GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance, hosted by founding band Donna the Buffalo. 4 days, 4 stages, 70 bands. Music, dancing, art, camping, workshops, healing arts, yoga, family fun, and more!

Over 30 years we have seen a lot of change in the music festival world and of course in the world we live in generally. We’ve always worked hard to adapt as easefully as possible to the changes and any challenges that affect how we produce our annual four-day festival, especially in terms of the experience of our dedicated and long-time patrons. Currently we are experiencing greatly increased and mandated costs (and policy) associated with keeping the festival a safe and secure environment. Due to this you will notice a health and safety fee added to each admission ticket to help offset the rising costs and requirements, equalling $3 a day. We appreciate your support and understanding as we continue to produce a non-corporate and not-for-profit music and arts event, serving to both engage and give back to the local and regional community.
