"I attended Pickin' on the Plains Festival for the first time in 2010.  I was so impressed with the quality of the music and friendliness of the bands.  It is such a relaxed atmosphere, and everybody is courteous and helpful.  Something I was sure I wouldn't enjoy has really got me hooked!!  I'll see you there the 3rd weekend in July, 2011!"

"I've been going to bluegrass festivals for over 30 years and this is one of the friendliest and most fun festivals I've ever been to.  The bands are first class and there is lots of jamming.  If you haven't been to this one, I would certainly recommend you try it.  You will enjoy it!!"
