Beaverdale Bluegrass Festival Returns to Big Crowds
BEAVERDALE, IOWA (July 17, 2022)
After a four year absence, the Beaverdale Bluegrass Festival returned on a perfect night to Tower Park Saturday, July 16th. Hundreds of residents turned out with blankets and camp chairs under overcast skies with a nice breeze.
Four bands played over roughly five hours. The Cardinal Sound from Des Moines kicked off the evening, followed by Lori King & Junction, Miles Over Mountains (from Chicago) and the evening was capped off by Joseph Huber from Wisconsin.
The Bluegrass Festival was rained out in 2019, and was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid pandemic. So for the first time in four years, the Beaverdale neighborhood was able to gather together and enjoy music, beer and dinner from a number of local food trucks.
The Bluegrass Festival is organized by the Beaverdale Neighborhood Association. BNA board President Marcus Coenen said, "It was great to be under the lighted Allen Hazen water tower listening to bluegrass with our neighbors. Thank you to everyone who came out to make this a success after a three-year break. Thank you to all of the volunteers and sponsors who helped make the Beaverdale Bluegrass Festival possible."
