The Music Is Coming Home – Earl Scruggs Music Festival 2024

Get ready for three jam-packed days of Bluegrass at the 2024 Earl Scruggs Music Festival!

The music will be coming back home to the foothills of North Carolina this Labor Day Weekend. Held annually at Tryon International Equestrian Center, Scruggs Fest has quickly become a beloved tradition among fans of Earl Scruggs, the three-finger banjoist who pioneered one of the most popular musical techniques in history. 

Now entering its third year, Earl Scruggs Music Festival was established in partnership with WNCW 88.7 at Isothermal Community College in Spindale, NC and the Earl Scruggs Center located in Shelby, NC. Incredible performances, toe-tapping rhythms, and a celebration of Bluegrass will take over the grounds August 30-September 1, 2024 and feature Tanya Tucker, Old Crow Medicine Show, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Steeldrivers, Mighty Poplar, and so many more. The festival looks forward to welcoming returning hosts Jerry Douglas and The Earls of Leicester. 

Tryon International Equestrian Center in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains serves as a quintessential backdrop for the festival, which promises on-site lodging, dining, and comfortable amenities throughout the event weekend. Additional programming to be announced at a later date will include performances by Junior Appalachian Musicians, PacJAM, and more. Advance-price tickets are currently on sale, with a variety of General Admission and VIP packages available.
