Make this Thanksgiving memorable by attending the very popular Thanksgiving Bluegrass Festival. It is a three-day annual fest. The event was started in 1980, and there has been no stopping since then. It is a youth music festival that also serves traditional family Thanksgiving dinner at the farm.

The best part is that you can also take your pets and kids to this fest. There are many kids activities to keep them happy and engaged. They can also play in the playground and enjoy their Thanksgiving to the fullest.
