Bluegrass coming to Niles

Published 7:26 am Friday, May 24, 2013

The 11th annual Niles Bluegrass Festival is May 30 through June 2 at Riverfront Park in downtown Niles. The free festival features two stages and Skerbeck Carnival Rides. New this year is the Circus of Art, a group of Michiana artists that brings static art and performing arts.
“It will give that area more of a circus feel to it throughout the weekend,” said Tom Majerek, festival organizer.
The concerts will take place at two stages: the Riverfront Park Amphitheater stage and the Wonderland stage (located behind Wonderland Theater).
