Grand Targhee Resort will host two annual music festivals this summer, complete with music, dancing, biking, hiking, camping and more.

Started in 2005 as a musical celebration of mountain culture and lifestyle, the 13th annual Targhee Fest is set for July 14-16 and will feature three days of roots, rock, Americana and funk. This year’s headliners include Michael Franti and Spearhead, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and Leftover Salmon. Tickets are on sale now for this widely anticipated event.

The 30th annual Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival is three full days of bluegrass and dancing, August 11-13. Targhee’s bluegrass festival has been a mainstay for bluegrass aficionados for over two generations. During the week leading up to the festival, many of the stage performers and artists participate in a very unique camp and music teaching experience by attending the Targhee Music Camp.

Tickets are also on sale for this music event and the lineup boasts a variety of bluegrass musicians, from classic to modern. Featured artists this year include The Infamous Stringdusters, Sam Bush, Del McCoury Band and Railroad Earth, along with fast up-and-comers like Sierra Hull and Mandolin Orange.

Both festivals are held in the high-alpine setting of Grand Targhee Resort, which offers camping and lodging, dining and lift-serviced hiking and biking throughout the festival dates.
