Joe Val Bluegrass Festival

  • When: February 13-15, 2015
  • Where: Sheraton Framingham – Framingham, MA

Join the Boston Bluegrass Union and celebrate the legacy of the late Joe Val with three big days of indoor bluegrass at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel.

We have a great lineup of national and regional talent, expanded workshops, Kid’s Academy, music vendors, and round-the-clock jamming. Our 2006 event won the coveted “Event of the Year” award from the International Bluegrass Music Association.  2015 is the 30th Anniversary of this wonderful event.

Where To Stay

FESTIVAL HOTEL
We host the festival at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel.  Hotel rooms will become available for on-line reservation in late November.  Typically the hotel sells out within 2-3 minutes, so be prepared to be online and ready at the announced date and time. More information about hotel reservation procedures will be posted in late October or early November.

OVERFLOW HOTELS
As in the past, we have reserved a limited number of rooms at nearby hotels (since the Sheraton always sells out quickly).
