Late August is a great time to be a music lover in the Stevens Point area.
The 5th annual Bluegrass in the Pines will take place August 21-23 at Rosholt Fair Park in Rosholt. Tickets are $10 for Thursday, $15 for Saturday and $15 for Sunday. Bluegrass artists include Feller and Hill & the Bluegrass Buckaroos, Larry Gillis and Swampgrass Band, Tommy Brown & County Line Grass, The High 48s, Sloppy Joe, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, and the Fish Heads. It should be a foot-stomping good time. Camping is available on a first-come, first served basis. Learn more.
