It doesn't happen often that a business publication will spotlight a bluegrass festival. So when it does, we like to call attention to it. Flagstaff Business News is featuring a front page - above the fold - article on the upcoming 10th anniversary of the Flagstaff PICKIN' IN THE PINES BLUEGRASS AND ACOUSTIC MUSIC FESTIVAL.
According to the story, by Starla Collins, the annual event benefits more than music lovers, it also benefits the economy – to the tune of more than a quarter million dollars annually.
“We could not do this event without all the volunteers, donors and sponsors,” said Julie Sullivan, festival director and co-founder. “The generosity of local and regional businesses really speaks to the fact people want world-class music with a down-home atmosphere. And several of the bands that helped us kick off our first year are back to help us celebrate our 10-year anniversary.”
The festival will celebrate ten years this weekend, September 18-20, at Fort Tuthill County Park off Exit 337 on Interstate 17 - just two miles south of Flagstaff with headliners, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder.
