With the weather being on the VERY seasonably warm side for much of February, we can only hope that some of those warm days will carry over to March here in the DMV. Especially the weekend of March 10. The DC Bluegrass Festival will kick off on March 10, indoors, at the Sheraton Tysons Hotel in Tysons Corner, VA. However, the following day, March 11, ShamrockFest will take place in the parking lot adjacent to RFK Stadium.
More details about both festivals are below. Also, click here for a complete list of all of the upcoming music festivals for 2017.
