The Father’s Day Festival is the CBA’s premier event of the year, and you are invited! Everyone in the world of California Bluegrass and Old-time music is just itching to return to their favorite festival – June 16 through 19, 2022.

Since the very first Father’s Day Festival in 1976, the California Bluegrass Association’s annual festival has become one of the top events in West Coast Bluegrass: a showcase for traditional and progressive Bluegrass, Old-time, and Gospel music.
The list of performers who have performed on our three stages over the years include beloved national touring bands and emerging California artists (many of whom have gone on to nationally prominent careers). Between sets our popular Vern’s Stage features some thirty California acts and guest artists. Add in the multitude of campsite jams that spring up day and night all over the beautiful grounds, and the music almost literally never stops.
From ice cream, beer and wine stands, a variety of great food concessions, instrument vendors and luthiers, and craft stalls, there’s something for everyone, young and old!
We invite you to join us at the return of our very special Festival!
