20 Bears

20th Year of Bear Festival Observed In 2016  -  Special Events Being Planned

Bear on the Square will present its 20th Annual Festival in 2016. That's right, twenty years of great bluegrass, old time, and authentic Appalachian arts and crafts. 

As the third weekend in April draws nearer, keep an eye out for lots of planned special events, galas, contests, and other fun over the next few months.

Music on the Square

Musicians start gathering Friday afternoon—acoustic jams are everywhere on the city square. Bring a chair, find someone playing your favorite music and join in. We do the old fiddle tunes, country and bluegrass. Bring your guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, bass, lap dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, autoharp, mouth harp, jews harp. By Sunday afternoon, your fingers are tired, vocal cords wore out, leg is sore from tapping your toes - time to go home after the best music jam yet. 'Till next year.
