Huck Finn JubileeOntario, CA -- Organizers of the Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival, the Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau, is proud to announce in addition to some of the greatest national headlining bluegrass names on stage, a Kids Academy and Kids Games have been added to the 3-day event. Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park in Ontario will be the site for this annual event June 12 thru 14, 2015 when thousands of bluegrass and jamgrass fans arrive to partake in a family friendly festival that celebrates traditional music, education, activities, and the evolution of bluegrass music.

The Bluegrass Academy for Kids is open for ages 4 to 12 and takes place each day during the festival. Supervised sessions are held each day and include music education, activities and food. From novice to seasoned performers there is something for everyone to learn about bluegrass music. The goal is to broaden a child’s musical horizons by introducing them to a variety of musical genres, including a truly American one—bluegrass. On Sunday the class will take the stage to perform for the crowd. Cost per child is $100. It is anticipated that tickets for the academy will sell out so it is recommended to make a reservation on line soon. More information about the Kids Academy, line-up, tickets, camping, RV, and hotel bookings can be found at Children ages 12 and under are free to attend the Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival.

In addition to the Bluegrass Academy for Kids the organizers of the Huck Finn Jubilee have contracted with an experienced Kids Games organizer to provide some of the traditional fun and games that families have enjoyed for years. The tradition of creating a family friendly festival and to encourage the education and evolution of bluegrass music continues since the Huck Finn Jubilee began in the mid-seventies. Included in the ticket price is access to the water park at Cucamonga Guasti Regional Park. For more details the website will soon list the type of games and competition anticipated for the 2015 Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival.

The Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival is produced by The Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau , the official destination marketing organization to promote the cities of Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga California to visitors nationally and internationally.

Established in 1975 at the hands of a homegrown, Southern California family, the Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival is a three-day gathering of true bluegrass and jamgrass music lovers. It is a genuine embodiment of endless pickin’ parties, instrumental roots education, and bands performing to fans that believe in the core value that bluegrass is about more than just the music. It is a community- one that delivers the nostalgia of music-driven campgrounds, bare feet, laughter, dancing, instrument exploration, and the development of new friendships.

Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival, produced by the Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau, supports the cross-pollination and belief in the evolution of this music. This unique festival showcases an array of musicians spanning across local, regional, and national Grammy nominated and award-winning bands alike. Huck Finn is dedicated in delivering exceptional headlining musicians as well as up and coming talent who will continue to fight for the deep-bedded roots of bluegrass while creating sounds for the future. Bluegrass tunes can largely be described as narratives on the everyday lives of the people whence the music came. The Huck Finn Jubilee Bluegrass Music Festival is held annually on the second weekend of June. For more information visit
