Tale of Poppy
It all began as a dream passed on from father to son and evolved into the largest bluegrass festival in the world!
Over 100 bands travel here the third week of September each year to share their love of music. A diverse array of transportation will allow you to explore an entire world of bluegrass. Immerse yourself within the 1400 acres of beautiful Kentucky hills.
Traveling east from Morehead, Poppy Mountain first comes into view from the Tom T. Hall Highway (US 60) and as you pull off the road at the entrance, you immediately feel the bluegrass spirit.
With exciting lineups, the crowd swells to over 20,000 guests each year! Big enough to be noticed, but still small and homey.
