These may be the Dog Days of Summer, but Eureka Springs keeps the musical energy flowing with great festivals and events centered on the “downhome” music for which our area is famous. Come join us at Cliff Cottage Inn, where your charming suite or cottage will put you right at the center of all the musical action this month.
Eureka Springs Bluegrass Festival – August 17-19
Location: Basin Spring Park and The City Auditorium (The Aud) located at 36 S. Main Street in downtown Eureka Springs just a staircase down from Cliff Cottage Inn.
A family favorite, the Eureka Springs Bluegrass Festival is held during the hottest days of August but fans and musicians keep each other cool by making a sweet breeze filled with traditional bluegrass sounds. Fiddles, banjos and guitars back up the loving lyrics of songs from days gone by and songs that will soon join the ranks of the standards. Watermelon Social, free bluegrass and gospel music and more!
