Heartland Bluegrass Music Association of Florida
Bluegrass music is one of America's only original forms of music. As such it is worthy of preservation, promotion, and participation by a dedicated group of people. We believe that this music engenders a sense of belonging, encourages musicians and spectators alike to come together and share their love and appreciation for this aspect of Americana. To many of us, it is a “family,” because regardless of where we go to hear or play bluegrass music, we are warmly welcomed and embraced by other bluegrassers.
Our Mission: "To preserve, encourage and promote traditional Bluegrass music and its evolving variants, and to provide a venue and a matrix within which we bring together those persons desiring to preserve, encourage and promote said music."

We are anticipating an exceptional year, with great entertainment, lots of jamming,
and our Saturday mornings will be a great asset with slow jam and instrument workshops being once again available. Be sure to bring your own chairs for the events in the back section of the park. Seating is provided for shows in the rec hall.
