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.

Where To Stay

We host the festival at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel.  Hotel rooms will become available for reservation in late November and typically sell out within 1-2 minutes, so you’ll need to be online and ready at precisely the opening bell.  More information will be posted in late October.  If you don’t get a room at the Sheraton there will still be 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).
