Minnesota Bluegrass Cabin Fever

Minnesota Bluegrass Cabin Fever Festival

2020 Dates TBA  -  Radisson Harborview Hotel, Duluth, MN

Just as winter is winding down, the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association presents the annual Cabin Fever Festival at The Radisson Harborview Hotel and Harbor City School in Duluth, MN  the last weekend in March.

It’s a great indoor weekend of stage shows, dances, workshops, theme jams, open mic, and all-day and late-night jam sessions. Top regional bands headline this event, which draws “pickers & grinners” from all over the upper Midwest, not to mention our friends from Canada.
