The world of bluegrass once again invades Raleigh this week. It is always such a fun event for music fans.

If you don’t have money to spend on tickets that’s okay you can still enjoy the street festival which has lots to offer. There are more than 100 bands that will play on over 7 stages during the weekend. Check out the full schedule here.

If you do decide to purchase tickets to the Wide Open Main stage know that you are supporting a great cause. A portion of the ticket sales goes to the Bluegrass Trust Fund which offers financial assistance to bluegrass music professionals in time of emergency need. Great music for a great cause!

Stay on top of your bluegrass game by following International Bluegrass Music Association on social media and shoot us a tweet @919raleigh if you find yourself downtown enjoying the music.
