Following news of the festival’s demise earlier this year, local townsfolk and several bluegrass and old timey enthusiasts rallied around to take up the challenge to deliver a festival event in Harrietville for 2013.
The Feathertop Chalet has been selected for the event which will utilise their accommodation options and their several venues and spaces. The festival date has been set for the fourth weekend in November (22nd to 24th Nov), a week later than normal, due to the availability of the venue. Feathertop Chalet management has been working with the committee and are keen to extend a warm welcome to the bluegrass and old timey event and its returning to the chalet.
Also being proposed for the November weekend is a meeting at the festival to discuss the possibility of forming an Australian Bluegrass and Old Time Music Assoc.
While details of artists and performance schedules have not been finalised, organisers felt it important to notify people of their plans to date so that those holding bookings for the third weekend of November can change their dates and travel plans.
While we have listed the room costs for the Feathertop Chalets below, accommodation will be available across Harrietville as has been the case in times past.
Feathertop Chalet has sent through their accommodation price list:

We’ll continue to posts news of any developments as they eventuate.
