Alison Krauss, Union Station and Kevin Eubanks to Perform at Gettysburg Festivals {Liberty Mountain Resort, Carroll Valley, PA}

Spring is officially here and summer is quickly approaching. It's time for fun in the sun, outdoor activities and local festivals!

Who doesn't love a good festival? Good food, good drinks, good vendors, good entertainment. Lucky for Liberty, there are tons of great festivals in the area from now until October. From the Pennsylvania Lavender Festival in June to the Catoctin Colorfest in October, there's a long list and wide variety of festivals that are worth adding to your calendar. You can keep up with all the festivals by visiting our online event calendar.

There are two festivals in particular that have something a little extra to get excited about. The Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival and the Gettysburg Festival will both feature famous, nationally-known entertainment artists that are sure to attract many.

First up, the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival featuring Alison Krauss & Union Station. Since beginning her music career at the age of 14, Alison has become one of the most well-known artists in contemporary bluegrass. She has earned 27 Grammy awards which is the most for any female artist in history. Alison & Union Station have released many CDs with their first being in 1989.

On Sunday, May 16th at 7pm, Alsion Krauss & Union Station will return to the main stage at Granite Hill Campground in Gettysburg. Considered the "bluegrass supergroup", they'll be joined by other bluegrass artists throughout the week. Tickets have gone on sale and can be purchased online. The festival is from May 13-16 at Granite Hill Campground.

Next to perform is "The Tonight Show" star Kevin Eubanks at the Gettysburg Festival in June. Eubanks is the widely-known and very entertaining band leader on Jay Leno's "The Tonight Show." For the past 18 years, Eubanks has played 'America into commercials' and has become a household name. He is a gifted musician and composer, and the Gettysburg Festival is delighted to have him as part of their jazz line-up. Eubanks has announced that he is leaving "The Tonight Show" and his June 26th performance at the festival will mark one of his first post-NBC appearances.

Kevin Eubanks will perform on Saturday, June 26th at the Festival Main Stage at Gettysburg College. Tickets to the show can be purchased online. The Gettysburg Festival is from June 18-27 at various Gettysburg locations.

If you aren't going on vacation this year, or if your vacation is months away, consider spending time in our area by visiting some of the local festivals. Liberty is located just 8 miles from Gettysburg and with hotel rooms available, you can sty with us and be at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival and the Gettysburg Festival in minutes.
