Mount St. Helens Bluegrass Festival: Toledo, WA. August 9th to 11th.

I gotta say this is one of my favorite festivals. It’s located on the High School grounds, there is wide open lawn and beautiful oak groves to camp under. You have to get there early to find a spot under the oaks. There are band scrambles, a gospel show on Sunday, workshops and a snack shop.Showers too. You will probably get a friendly visit from the General, the man in charge, driving his golf cart through the festival grounds each day.
