Lonesome River BandSandusky/Bayshore KOA Campground in Sandusky is our host for the Third Annual North Coast Bluegrass Festival. The event proceeds will go to Cancer Services of Erie County.

Headlined by The Lonesome River Band, there's a full slate of bluegrass bands on the schedule combined with a weekend of food and fun for families of all ages.

"We are so excited to be holding the festival again this year," says Jeff Hoffman of Sandusky/ Bayshore KOA. "Giving back to the community is a way for us to honor our brother, Doug, who we lost to cancer. We have always loved bluegrass music, and holding this festival has been something we have wanted to do for a very long time."

Tribute signs are available for a $50 donation (download the tribute sponsor form pdf file). Honor whomever you wish by sponsoring a sign. All proceeds will help to provide free services to area families dealing with the devastation of cancer.
