  • Central Kentucky’s Hosparus Fest music festival raises record $20,000

  • News

For the sixth year, local bluegrass enthusiasts hosted a weekend of music and fun to benefit Hosparus Central Kentucky. Breckinridge Bluegrass Music Association (BBMA), along with other bluegrass groups from Hardin and Grayson counties, brought in some of the hottest acts in bluegrass music to raise a record $20,296 for patients and families. That’s more than double what the event brought in last year!

Longtime Hosparus supporter Bobby Smith launched the Vine Grove Bluegrass Band Scramble in 2012, and it raised more than $26,000 for Hosparus over the years. In 2016, the event merged with BBMA, was renamed the Hosparus Bluegrass Music Festival, moved to Rough River State Park Lodge.

Held this year March 31-April 1, the weekend was filled with music, fellowship, as well as exciting live and silent auctions. Many local businesses and individuals from Hardin, Grayson and Breckinridge counties offered their support by sponsoring the festival.

“It was great to see a group of volunteers come together and give of their time and efforts for a great cause,” said Brian Stevenson, president of BBMA. “I was very amazed with the results of the festival. It was a win-win for everyone, especially Hosparus patients and families.
“It has been wonderful to see the growth of this festival over the years,” added Lisa Sanford, Director of Development for Central Kentucky. “The money raised has made such a difference in helping us provide the highest quality care for our patients and families, regardless of their ability to pay.”

As you can see, Hosparus Fest tops the charts when it comes to special events, and next year’s festival is sure to be another hit. We hope to see you there!
