The third annual Baldcypress Bluegrass Festival will be held from noon to 6 p.m. May 19 at Roman Fisher Farm at the Great Cypress Swamp, 24558 Cypress Road, Frankford.

The festival will include five regional and nationally-known bluegrass bands, food trucks, local beer and wines, craft vendors, a native plant sale and free bus tours through Delaware Wild Lands' Great Cypress Swamp.

The festival will benefit DWL. Festival grounds are on a farm in Sussex County, at the edge of the Great Cypress Swamp. DWL owns and manages 10,600 contiguous acres of the Swamp, which straddles the Delaware-Maryland state border.

Headliner will be Johnny Staats & the Delivery Boys from West Virginia. Four additional bluegrass bands will play sets throughout the day: New & Spare Fools, Acoustic Turnpike, Flatland Drive and Mountain Ride.

Tickets for adults are $35 at the gate. Ages 13-17 are $10. Kids 12 and younger are free. The stage and some seating are covered under a large bandshell tent. Guests are advised to bring a folding chair.
