It’s time for the annual Bluegrass for Babies Concert! We make sure to go every year! It’s so fun and there is SO MUCH to do! Every station there is something for the kids, whether it’s face painting, decorating cookies, coloring, making crafts or playing games. If you are looking for a fun, family event…this is it!
On Saturday, September 19, Bluegrass for Babies returns to Sawyer Point for its 7th annual concert benefiting Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
This year’s concert lineup features performances from returning local bands, Hickory Robot at 3pm and Comet Bluegrass All-Stars at 7pm. Special guest Jennifer Ellis will perform her popular children’s songs at 4:15pm. Headlining the event with a performance at 5pm is Pennsylvania band Cabinet. Cabinet was recently named one of the “Top 10 Country Artists You Need to Know in 2015” by Rolling Stone.
New for this year’s concert are expanded food options including booths from Eli’s BBQ, Mazunte, Dewey’s Pizza and Green BEAN Delivery. Local craft beer offerings have also expanded with beers from Mad Tree and Mt. Carmel breweries on tap.
Speaking of The Green BEAN Delivery…they have a special deal for Healthy Roots Foundation Supporters. Everyone who uses the code HEALTHYROOTS will get $15 off their first bin. Additionally, 5% of their next 25 bins will go to the Healthy Roots Foundation!
The concert, an official Giving Hope Fundraising Event for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, was started by Anne and Matt Schneider in 2009 as a way to give back to Children’s, which had provided life-saving surgery to their newborn son. Since the first concert in their backyard in 2009, Bluegrass for Babies has raised nearly $130,000 for Children’s, and has evolved into the Healthy Roots Foundation, a year-round organization providing tools, programming, and resources as well as hosting a variety of special events with the mission of helping parents create an optimal environment to raise healthy children.
Tickets for the Bluegrass for Babies benefit concert are $15 for adults in advance and $20 day of, with children admitted for free.
