35th Annual Bluegrass & Old Time Music Festival July 1 – 3, 2022!

The P.E.I. Bluegrass & Old Time Music Festival draws some of the very best entertainment in Bluegrass and Old Time genres of music, hiring acts from across the United States and Canada, to perform at the annual festival.

Musicians, returning patrons, new attendees, both young and old, come out year after year; some have attended every year since the first festival held in 1985.

Corey Zink is a fine example of a dedicated “country boy.”  Corey’s roots to country/ bluegrass music run deep and wide going back to his grandfather, his parents, aunts and uncles all performing country/bluegrass music.  Corey “absorbed” their music and the music of many great performers from his early childhood and began playing and singing before age two.  He quickly became well versed with various instruments including mandolin, bass guitar, bass fiddle, acoustic guitar and any other instrument within his reach. 

12+ Bands over 3 Days

The main stage welcomes Bluegrass Acts from Atlantic Canada and the USA during the three day festival. Instrument workshops will be led by Dave Adkins and other professional musicians. Help spread the word to your friends on site and come out to meet the band members.

The Kids in Bluegrass will host our Open Mics on Wednesday & Thursday, 7 p.m. in Plowmen’s Hall.  Fee: $12 per person at the gate; free for weekend pass holders.

Banding Together

The festival is completely hosted by volunteers who enjoy Bluegrass and Old Time music and want to bring the best in this genre to Prince Edward Island for fans from near and far to come and enjoy!
