The Hovander Homestead Bluegrass Festival is a program of the Whatcom Parks and Recreation Foundation (WPRF.) All proceeds from the Festival benefit WPRF and Hovander Homestead Park.

Though we are thrilled with the response we have received from eager Bluegrass fans who are looking forward to attending the Festival, ticket sales alone are not enough to meet the expenses associated with running a multi-day music festival.

Support from our volunteers, donors, and generous sponsors is a vital part of building our Festival, and ensuring that the Hovander Homestead Bluegrass Festival becomes a Labor Day tradition for decades to come.

There are many ways to support the Festival and live Bluegrass in our region! Make a donation, become a sponsor or advertiser, and check out our festival ‘friends’ who are hard at work bring Bluegrass and live music to their neck of the woods (Friends & Festivals page coming soon.)
