Each summer outstanding local, regional and national bluegrass acts converge on the Podunk Stages and deliver an awesome festival experience.  Our Main Stage festivities kick off on Thursday with our annual Band Competition sponsored by Telefunken.

Our Showcase Stage features Bluegrass and Bluegrass friendly acts from around Connecticut and the region playing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Thursday evening the Showcase Stage will host an Open Mic  & Jam for anyone interested.

Gates will open at 1 pm on Wednesday for early bird campers. Camp on site or come for the day or night using our close, ample parking.

There will be plenty to do for the whole family.  Learn about our CampingFamily Fun Activities, and Vendors.  Check out what else there is to do in the area on the CT Tourism site.

Podunk is proudly presented by the members of the Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival Inc. Board of Directors and is held annually on the second full weekend of August in Goshen, CT.
