Della Mae at 2012 Wintergrass Festival |
2020 Wintergrass Music Festival

February 20 - 23, 2020 | Hyatt Regency Bellevue

Now in its 27th season, the 2020 Wintergrass Music Festival makes its eleventh straight start in Bellevue at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue February 20 - 23, 2020. Over 30 bands and 200 musicians--from regional and national favorites to international acts--will perform over the 4-day festival. 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, Swedish polskas and many more types of acoustic string music.


So if you love bluegrass, or any kind of old-timey, folk and country music, you'll love Wintergrass. You will love Wintergrass in Bellevue!
