3,000 people expected to attend Queen City Bluegrass Festival
Queen City, Mo. —
For over 30 years, the Vincent family of Queen City has continued to host their annual Sally Mountain Bluegrass Festival.
The festival takes place from July 4 through July 8 at Sally Mountain Park in Queen City.
The Vincent family is apart of the band called the Sally Mountain Show.
KTVO spoke with Brian Vincent and he says the festival started because his family traveled to bluegrass festivals, and thought it would be great to host their own festival in their own home town.
The family acquired the park land and Brian says this year they are expecting 3,000 people to attend the festival over the course of four days.
This is the first year the festival has sold out of camping spots.
Brian says people from all over the U.S. travel to attend the festival each year.
" We had two people come in from Texas. We have people coming from Washington State, from Oregon, from Maine. We have people coming from Kentucky, from Alabama. Over the years, it's gone from a regional bluegrass festival to very much a national draw into this area."
Events for the festival will continue throughout the week.
Dailey and Vincent perform Thursday at 8:15 p.m.
Rhonda Vincent and The Rage perform Friday at 3:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.
