The 2015 Union County Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival will run from Friday, September 18 through Sunday, September 20. The event will be held again this year at the Pottersburg Bridge, 17141 Inskeep-Cratty Road, North Lewisburg. General admission is $5 and includes both Saturday and Sunday. Children under 12 are admitted for free. There will be tons of great music, food, and history.

When Joe and I attended Mechanicsburg Junior High School, one of our super history teachers was Mr. Bill Purk. Mr. Purk was also my Junior High basketball coach (he sadistically loved to make us run sprints and I can still hear him telling us to line up for one more gut busting sprint down the gym–“On the line!”).

Mr. Purk is also a wonderful musician who performed at my and Joe’s wedding reception. Mr. Purk and The Muleskinner Band will be playing at the Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival on Friday for the Sunset dinner on the bridge, which is so popular it is now sold out. You can still have breakfast on the bridge, however, on Saturday from 9 am to 10:30 am.

For a full musical line up, go HERE.

There will be a special Saturday evening concert from 4:30-6:30 pm featuring the Sugar Creek Bluegrass with Bill Purk as the emcee. Tickets are $12 in advance for the concert or $15 at the bridge. Again, children 12 and under are free. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Union County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 937-642-6279 or emailing: info@unioncounty.org.

This is the eighth year for this festival and it only continues to get better and better!
