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

We host the festival at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel.  Hotel rooms became available Tuesday, November 18 at 7pm EST and sold out within minutes.  But there are still plenty of rooms available at our overflow hotels.

Sheraton Hotel Information

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