The Seventh Annual Big Horn Mountain Festival begins Friday and runs through Sunday at the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Buffalo.
The music festival features music best described as “Americana:” traditional, folk, bluegrass, old-timey and acoustic.
The three-day event will offer well known and respected bands and performers entertaining on the main stage and also offering various workshops on their particular instruments, jamming with groups and songwriting, among other things.
Festival co-organizer Lynn Young said people should come and enjoy the music and other offerings during the festival.
In addition to the great music and the workshops, the festival will host the Wyoming State Mandolin and Banjo Championships and a fiddle and guitar contest. A band scramble and campground picking are also part of the weekend.
Food, refreshments and arts and crafts vendors will be on hand as well. Sheridan Media's own Gene Sturlin will emcee the festival.
Tickets for the event can be purchased for the individual day: $25 for Sunday only, $35 for Friday only, or $45 for Saturday only. A three-day pass for the festival is $85. Tickets can be purchased at the gate.
More than 1,500 people are expected from the local area as well as from all over the country during the weekend.
