    Get ready to tap your toes and immerse yourself in the timeless melodies of bluegrass at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival 2024, taking place from August 30th to September 1st in Woodstown, New Jersey. This beloved event, which has been a staple for over 50 years, marks the first-ever bluegrass festival in the northeastern United States.

    Nestled in the picturesque rolling farmland of South Jersey along US Route 40, just seven miles east of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, the festival finds its home at the Salem County Fair Grounds. Woodstown, New Jersey, a charming town approximately four miles farther east along Route 40, serves as the nearest point of access, while Wilmington, Delaware, lies just across the Delaware River, approximately 10 miles to the west-northwest. For those coming from further afield, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is approximately 40 miles to the northwest, while Atlantic City, New Jersey, sits about 60 miles to the southeast, at the end of Route 40.

    Operated by the Salem County Fair Grounds Association and situated on land owned by Salem County, the fairgrounds host a variety of events throughout the year, including the annual Salem County Fair and numerous 4-H and agricultural gatherings. While the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival takes center stage during this classic bluegrass weekend, attendees can also enjoy a range of farming and agricultural events that highlight the region's rich heritage.

    It's important to note that, in accordance with Salem County regulations, alcoholic beverages are not permitted on the fairgrounds at any time. This rule ensures a family-friendly atmosphere where everyone can come together to celebrate the music and culture of bluegrass in a safe and welcoming environment.

    So pack your lawn chairs, grab your instruments, and join us for a weekend filled with toe-tapping tunes, heartfelt harmonies, and the unmistakable spirit of bluegrass at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival 2024.
