A little bit of Bluegrass is a powerful thing

The Volunteer Committee that hosts and organizes this festival feels that it is important to give back to the community where they live and work.

Since the festival's inception, over $100,000 has been raised and put to work in our community.

Proceeds from this year's event will be shared with Renfrew Victoria Hospital and Hospice Renfrew.

Thank you to everyone who sponsors, volunteers, attends, and contributes to this annual festival.

Together, you continue to make a real difference in the lives of others.
