Casa Grande—The 2013 Agri-Country Bluegrass Festival is shaping up to be a real toe-tapping good time.
The year’s festival will once again feature marvelous music, exciting entertainment, classic cars (Saturday only), super shopping and fantastic food.
Held at the Pinal Fairgrounds and Event Center on Eleven Mile Corner Road, this annual event is host to some of the nation’s top Bluegrass artists. “We have brought in some major national acts this year. It’s three days jam packed with great talent,” commented Executive Director Michael Searle. “Whether you’re a long time fan of Bluegrass music or new to the whole scene, this year’s festival is not to be missed.”
Set for Thursday, January 25 through Sunday January 27 (rain or shine), the three-day festival will showcase amazing bluegrass bands from throughout the country. The music begins on Friday at 10:00 AM and goes nonstop (during festival hours, of course) through Sunday at 5:00 PM. You’ll hear incredible artists such as Audie Blaylock & Redline, Larry Gillis, Digger Davis & Tombstone, Run Boy Run, Triple L Band and many more.
Saturday, along with the great music, enjoy a good old-fashioned classic car show. From Corvettes to Chevys, Fords to Ferraris, and even some one-of-a-kind vehicles, you’re sure to find a favorite. In fact, be sure and vote for yours – the car chosen as fan favorite wins big!
The festival will also feature our usual assortment of fabulous food. Corn dogs, old fashioned soda, kettle corn, fry bread and more are all on the menu. Leave the diets at home and come out to enjoy delicious treats.
Shopping is also a festival favorite. You’ll find arts and crafts vendors, jewelry, hats, gifts and so much more.
There’s a lot more included with your festival admission. You’ll want to go through the Quilts Wild and Wonderful Show. Don’t miss visiting with Julie from Julie’s Sewing Corner of Miami, Arizona. She’ll be bringing over 200 bolts of fabric from the largest collection of Southwest prints in the country. She will be on hand to answer all your quilting questions. Agri-Sprouts Kids activities on Saturday are sure to thrill the little ones with hay rides and games. Pig races will be going on throughout the event.
