You may have noticed that we’ve been a little quiet the past few months. We at the Foundation had a busy this summer planning and running the first-annual Hovander Homestead Bluegrass Festival. The Festival was held over Labor Day Weekend out at Hovander Homestead Park and we are happy to announce that it was a success, raising about $15,000 after expenses for the Foundation, $3,000 of which is pledged to help with improvements out at Hovander Homestead Park’s farm animal contact area.
We are so grateful for all of the amazing support we received from the community through sponsorship, donations,volunteers, and most of all to the guests who came out to spend their holiday weekend listening to fine Bluegrass musicians from across the country. The weekend was filled with music, from our kick-off Salmon Dinner on Friday evening until Monday morning when the last of the campers packed up their sites and pulled out of the camp ground.

We’re happy to announce that the Foundation will be hosting the 2nd Annual Hovander Homestead Bluegrass Festival ove Labor Day Weekend, September 1-4, 2017. We learned a lot from this first year, and we’re taking our observations and feedback from our audience seriously as we plan for year two. We hope you will join us!
