The concept of a Bluegrass Festival in North Creek was born in February 2004 by former Co-Chairman Joel Beaudin. Many years prior to that Co-Chairman, Rusty Leigh, also had a similar dream for the Town of Johnsburg. Fate and good luck brought these two entrepreneurs together and the Upper Hudson Bluegrass Festival was born!
In early 2007 the “Upper Hudson Festivals Inc.” registered with the state of New York as a not for profit organization. This organization is dedicated to community service through the production of high quality musical festivals.
