Winners announced about 6:45.
The winning bands will take home the following cash prizes: 1st Place – $500 / 2nd Place – $300 / 3rd Place – $250 / 4th Place – $150 / 5th Place – $100. Plus – we have two prizes chosen by the Dallas Heritage Village staff – Best Dressed Bluegrass Band ($100) and Village Favorite ($100).
Our bluegrass band contest will be held RAIN or SHINE. If it’s dry, we’ll be on the stage in the middle of the old-time main street. If it’s wet, we’ll be inside the nice pavilion just up the hill from the main street buildings. So don’t let the weather slow you down! Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and picnics and have a great day at Dallas Heritage Village!
