Busy Bird Bluegrass Festival - Finger Lakes, Berkshire
Through July 14, 2019 - Berkshire

The Busy Bird Bluegrass Festival was founded in 2004 by the Kithcart family of Berkshire, NY. Beverly Kithcart (whose maiden name was Bird), a loving mother of 9 children, enjoyed attending festivals throughout her years. She had a warm personality that was liked by many, and she always had something to do to keep her busy. Her niece and nephews called her "Aunt Busy", which later led to "Busy Bird". Beverly truly desired to have a festival of her own someday that she could share with her family. With the help of her children, her dream came true in the summer of 2004 with the then named "Busy Bird Family Bluegrass Festival." Sadly, the 2004 festival would be the only one 'Busy Bird' would attend. She passed away in January 2005. The loss of their mother hit the Kithcart family hard, but they decided to continue holding the festival annually in memory of their mother. In August 2011, the Busy Bird Bluegrass Festival was taken over by the Gwardyak family. They have promised to continue the Annual tradition of providing the community the same great, festive environment that the Kithcart family started.
