A Note About HSB14 Scheduling

A number of people have approached us recently regarding the fact that this year’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival falls on the same weekend as Yom Kippur. When we first realized the conflict, last year, we considered other dates for the event. None were available. The festival takes over a large area of the park, so scheduling is no simple feat. Most of the staff and many of the artists work this event into their calendar, so there was only so much flexibility we had to look at other dates. read more »

Warren Hellman Museum Now Closed

The Warren Hellman Museum is now closed. The museum was a temporary exhibit celebrating the life of HSB founder Warren Hellman that ran from October 2012 thru January 2014, in collaboration with Slim’s, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival and the Hellman Family.
