Huck Finn Jubilee, the West Coast’s ultimate jam and bluegrass festival, has released a schedule of events jam-packed with three days of top headliner performers, workshops and activities this Father’s Day weekend.
This year’s music lineup includes some of the biggest names in the industry, including The String Cheese Incident (Friday and Saturday nights), The Del McCoury Band (Friday), Rhonda Vincent (Friday), Sam Bush (Friday), Keller Williams with the Travelin’ McCourys (Saturday), Dailey & Vincent (Sunday), Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver (Sunday), and the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley (Saturday), who will make his final West Coast performance at Huck Finn as a part of his farewell tour.
Banjo workshops, old-time activities and contests, a jammer’s campground, fishing, raft-building, a water playground, living history displays and more make Huck Finn one of the best and biggest bluegrass festivals of its kind in California. RV and tent camping are sold out, but discounted hotel packages are available that include lodging and admission tickets. It all takes place June 13-15 at Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park in Ontario.

It was the touching history and tradition of Huck Finn Jubilee and its commitment to expanding bluegrass into new audiences in California that persuaded SCI to perform at this year’s event.
“Bluegrass has a way of inspiring imagination,” said band member Michael Kang. “It inspired a California family 37 years ago to dedicate their lives to putting on this annual event. It inspired us as a band to push the progressive limits of the traditional elements of the music, and we hope to continue the tradition this June by inspiring new audiences to love bluegrass and to grow from it as much as we do.”
The Greater Ontario Convention and Visitors Bureau, which assumed ownership of the festival this year, is committed to providing a music feast filled with the best traditional bluegrass musicians on tour today, and to infuse new twists and interpretations of the music to draw in new audiences and to raise awareness of bluegrass everywhere.
“Our goal is to make Huck Finn the West Coast’s ultimate bluegrass festival,” said Michael Krouse, President and CEO of the Greater Ontario CVB. “We are honored to have The String Cheese Incident support our vision in taking bluegrass to the next level in California.”
