Featuring Andy Hall & Chris Pandolfi (The Infamous Stringdusters), Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon) and Tyler Grant & Adrian Engfer (the Grant Farm), the Bluegrass Generals kick things off on June 28. Raleigh, NC-based Chatham County Line brings their traditional Appalachian bluegrass sounds to Vail on July 5, followed by one of the most dynamic bands within this genre, Donna the Buffalo on July 12. Closing the summer on July 19 are 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association and 2015 Telluride Bluegrass award-winners, the Lil Smokies.

Opening duties will be supplied by Mile High Express, Vail’s own Hardscrabble, Sweetwater String Band and the Jay Roemer Band ft. Dave Carroll (Trampled by Turtles) respectively.

Additionally, the Vail Summer Bluegrass Series will once again return to the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens to present Bluegrass in the Gardens. Taking place at 1 p.m. on show-day Wednesdays, Bluegrass in the Gardens will feature the Vail Bluegrass artists in an extremely intimate setting for an acoustic set and Q&A.

A list of preferred accommodations, dining options, things-do-in-summer, and more, is soon to be announced.

Betty Ford Alpine Gardens is the highest botanical garden in North America providing free access to an estimated 100,000 visitors annually. Located on a little over three acres in Vail’s Ford Park, the Alpine Gardens is open to the public from dawn until dusk throughout the year.

Last July the Gardens debuted the Education Center and Alpine House. The building houses interactive exhibits for visitors to better understand our alpine environment, a cold greenhouse to grow and display alpine plants throughout the year, and work stations for the Gardens conservation and environmental science, and ornamental horticulture programs.
