Welcome To The John Hartford Memorial Festival

Where in the world can you go to sit back, relax, leave your worries at the gate, enjoy campground cooking, have plenty of wiggle room and listen to campfire jamming?  Where can you go to experience the most exciting, thoroughly entertaining bunch of pickers and singers ever assembled in the most laid back atmosphere in the country? Join us June 1-4, in Bean Blossom Indiana, at the Bill Monroe Music Park & Campground for the 6th annual John Hartford Memorial Festival, The Most Laid Back Festival in America! That's where it all takes place.
