Ricky Skaggs is bringing his country/bluegrass sound to Minnesota in August.

He will be performing as part of the 40th Annual Minnesota Bluegrass August Festival held at El Rancho Manana August 8th- 11th. The event includes four days of live music on five stages, dancing, workshops and showcases, and some of the best bluegrass music you can find in the state.

In addition to professional bands, many of the more than 4,000 attendees will bring their own instruments and join in on their own jam sessions that go on day and night. How fun is that!


Other performers besides Ricky Skaggs include:

  • Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver
  • Monroe Crossing
  • Clay Hess Band
  • Molsky’s Mountain Drifters
  • Fireside Collective
  • Steam Machine
  • And many many others!

In-advance adult admission for the festival is $95 for Minnesota Bluegrass & OId-Time Music Association (MBOTMA) members and $105 for non-members. Tickets will be $120 at the gate. Tickets for teens (13-19) are $10 for any day or $20 for the weekend. Kids 12 and under are free with an adult ticket. On-site non-utility camping is included with a four-day pass.
