Welcome to the 41st annual Darrington Bluegrass Festival July 21 - 23!  Once again a great lineup of music is planned for the year at the Darrington Bluegrass Grounds with the famous backdrop of Whitehorse Mountain.  You will find a couple of places to eat in town, and some near by places to stay if you don't have plans to camp at the festival.  The Mountain Loop Books & Coffee is a great place to visit, meet some of the community or learn more about the area and great outdoor recreation.
