10th Union County Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival is September 23-24.

The 2017 Union County Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival will run from Friday, September 22 through Sunday, September 24. 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 were in Junior High School, our history teacher was Mr. Bill Purk (pictured to the right). Besides being a great teacher, 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, September 22 for the Sunset dinner on the bridge from 5:30 to 8 pm. Unfortunately, this very popular event is now SOLD OUT!

You can still have breakfast on the bridge, however, on Saturday from 8:30 am to 10:30 am.

For a full musical line up, go HERE.

There will be a special Saturday evening Picnic on the Bridge from 5:30-7:00 pm featuring the Sugar Creek Bluegrass. The cost for the picnic is $25 per person and includes broasted chicken, two sides, rolls, drink, and pie. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling Tina Knotts, Chamber and Tourism Director, at the Union County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 937-642-6279 or by emailing: tknotts@unioncounty.org.

On Sunday, the Ohio Village Muffins Baseball Team will hold an exhibition game at 2 pm..

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