In addition to more than 70 hours of musical performances, Wintergrass also offers a robust selection of unique educational academies and workshops including PintGrass, a new music program for children 4-7 years. All ages can jam at any of the 75 free family-friendly workshops offered during the festival itself.
While Wintergrass is primarily a bluegrass music festival, you'll hear plenty of other styles of acoustic music including Gypsy jazz, Celtic music, Old-Timey, Brazilian choro, Swedish polskas and many more types of acoustic string music.
