Welcome To Dumplin Valley!

If you joined us in September you are already aware that we are going to have 2 shows in 2008. We are really excited to be able to bring even more great bluegrass music to Dumplin Valley for your pleasure.
Every time we run into someone who was here we are asked this question: "Who won the contest?" Well, since our website is undergoing an extreme makeover, we haven't been able to get the word, here it is.....................Tom Cochran, Polk City, FL. He submitted "Dumplin Valley JuneFest". Actually, there were a few others with that same name or very similar names. And to be fair, we picked one at random. There were so many creative names.........they were all really good. Thanks!

We have finally prepared a flyer to get the dates out for 2008 and also to let everyone know which bands we have lined up so far. Here is a list for June 12-13-14: The Isaacs; Dailey & Vincent; Seldom Scene; Kenny & Amanda Smith; Nothin' Fancy; Steep Canyon Rangers; Balsam Range; Jimbo Whaley & Greenbrier; Dave Peterson & 1946; Tim Graves & Cherokee; Shadow Ridge.

Here is the list so far for September 18-19-20: Rhonda Vincent & The Rage; The Grascals; Bradley Walker; IIIrd Tyme Out; John Reischman & The Jaybirds; Bluegrass Brothers; Dailey & Vincent; Dan Paisley & Southern Grass; Jimbo Whaley & Greenbrier; Balsam Range; James King; Larry Stephenson. Also, The Bluegrass Bus Museum will be back. The complete list will be listed on the website soon.
If you are planning to camp, please let us know soon. You can call to make your reservations: 865-397-7942. So far, September is almost full and June is coming along pretty good. We enjoyed having everyone here for 2007 and are looking forward to 2008.

Speaking of camping...................we are now operating our camping area as a full time campground - Dumplin Valley Farm RV Park. So, if you are traveling through here and need a good place to spend the night we are here! Also, if you are looking for a good camper..............well, we have our 2000 Wilderness fifth-wheel for sale. Call Joe for information about that.

We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday. We have much to be thankful for................good bluegrass friends is one thing! Christmas is coming soon and we hope that you and your family & friends will get to spend time together and make some wonderful memories this year.

Thanks for reading this blog (its my first!) and thanks for all your support!
