2021 Memorial and Labor Day festival.

With great sadness we must report that the Northern Indiana Bluegrass Association has been forced to cancel its Memorial Day 2021 bluegrass festival. This is the third festival we have been forced to cancel.
The Labor Day event held in Noble county is being finalized with a band schedule to be announced next month.

Northern Indiana Bluegrass Association
Inclusion Statement

The Northern Indiana Bluegrass Association (NIBGA) is committed to being a diverse organization bringing the experience and joy of bluegrass music to everyone. Bluegrass music has expanded far beyond its original audience, and bluegrass music enthusiasts are not all the same. We believe that drawing upon our differences empowers all of us to connect and belong, and this will make our music thrive and grow in the future.

  • Anyone with an interest in bluegrass music is welcome at NIBGA events.
  • Performers at NIBGA events will be evaluated and selected solely on the quality of their music and the entertainment value their stage show holds for our family-based audience.
  • Vendors will be given consideration based solely on the level to which their product satisfies a need for our audience.
  • Grants will be administered based solely on the need and musical potential of candidates.
