Bluegrass music is an important part of our Darrington heritage coming to the community from the settlers of South Carolina in the early 1900s.  Local bands were formed from friends and family enjoying playing together both for the love of the music and just having fun visiting.  It wasn't until 1977 when the first Darrington Bluegrass festival was held and since then has been growing ever since.  Learn more...
