Bluegrass festival gets commission’s blessing

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

A bluegrass festival that has been held in Levy County for 28 years got the County Commission's blessing for a conditional use permit for the 40 acres that will eliminate the need to keep coming back twice a year for a festival permit. 

The unanimous approval by the commission will save the property owner and festival organizer from having to pay $700 to apply for a permit each time the twice-a-year festival is held. 

Dave L. Elliott of Trenton, and Tin Roof Shack Productions and Darby Landing – 40 LLC, made the request for the permit to hold the Withlacoochee River Bluegrass Festival twice a year at the site on Southeast 127th Terrace outside Inglis. 

There is a 91-foot by 119-foot pole barn where concerts are staged and the audience can sit under a cover. Participants and visitors also camp out on the property during the festival and vendors set up in conjunction with the event. Elliott said, “That's what these events bring – people who want to come play music.”
