The New Richmond Bluegrass Festival

Quebec's first and only bluegrass music festival, the New Richmond Bluegrass Festival was founded in 2003 and takes place annually during the week leading up to Labour Day at Duthie's Point in New Richmond (Quebec, Canada).

What began as a small event which was to be a one-time festival, has grown into one of Canada's most popular bluegrass music festivals and a 2016 Inernational Bluegrass Music Association finalist as "Event of the Year"

The festival hosts some of bluegrass music's top acts from around North America. Some past performers include Dailey & Vincent, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage, the Gibson Brothers, the Lonesome River Band, the Special Consensus, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, Ray Legere & Acoustic Horizon, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers and more.

In addition, rough camping is FREE with the purchase of a festival pass and there are activities for the entire family throughout the week.
